Royals visit White Sox with slim playoff hopes in tow

CHICAGO -- The Kansas City Royals will try to preserve their slim hopes for a wild-card playoff berth when they open a three-game road series against the Chicago White Sox on Friday night.

Kansas City (75-77) is 3 1/2 games behind the Minnesota Twins with 10 games remaining in the race for the American League's second wild-card spot. The Royals will aim for their third consecutive victory after posting back-to-back wins over the Toronto Blue Jays, 15-5 and 1-0.

An up-and-down season coupled with a tight playoff race has the Royals in a strange position. They are trying to secure their third playoff appearance in the past four years while simultaneously trying to avoid their first sub-.500 season since 2012.
