The Royals won their 81st game of the season with a 10-4 defeat of the White Sox. Kansas City opened up with four runs in the first inning. Aaron Guiel led the way on offense, with three RBI’s. Rondell White and Desi Relaford drove in two runs apiece. Darrell May won his 10th game of the season with an eight-inning performance, allowing four runs off six hits. With the victory, the Royals assured themselves of their first non-losing record since 1993. It also guarantees Mike Sweeney’s return. His contract has a clause, which would have allowed him to leave if the team finished below .500. That clause is also good for the 2004 season. Kansas City wrapped up its 10-game road trip with a 7-3 record, but still lost a game in the A.L. Central standings falling to five-and-a-half games back. The Twins have won nine of their last ten.
