by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Royals and White Sox game scheduled for Saturday was postponed due to inclement weather in Chicago. Scheduled starters for the game, Edinson Volquez and John Danks, will have their starts pushed back to Sunday, pushing everyone in the rotation back one day.

Five ejected from White Sox-Royals Thursday after brawl
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

A comebacker by White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton to Royals starter Yordano Ventura for the final out in the seventh inning ignited a benches-clearing brawl in Thursday's game between the two teams, resulting in five players getting ejected.

Ventura could be seen mouthing an expletive to Eaton, taking apparent umbridge with the comebacker or something that Eaton may have said on his way to first base. After the ruckus was finally settled, the umpires ejected Ventura along with outfielder Lorenzo Cain and pitcher Edinson Volquez. White Sox starter Chris Sale and teammate Jeff Samardzija were also hit with ejections, ending the night of both starting pitchers in one fell swoop.

Ventura, who was ejected for the second time this season and is likely facing a lengthy suspension, finished the night with two earned runs on five hits and one walk in seven innings along with eight strikeouts.

Sale threw 70 of his 99 pitches for strikes but managed to rack up just two strikeouts before being ejected. He also allowed two earned runs on nine hits and one walk in seven innings of work.

Play resumed in the top of the eighth inning with the two teams tied 2-2.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez gave up only one earned run in Monday's 7-1 win over the Twins. 

Volquez went seven innings and struck out five batters. He allowed five hits and walked just one hitter. Volquez threw 98 pitches and faced 27 batters during his time in the game. 

"I think my fastball was better tonight," Volquez said, per MLB.com. "I didn't have my changeup tonight. I didn't have my best stuff. I had good command. I located my pitches better because I knew I didn't have my best stuff."

Volquez's ERA is 1.99 for the season. His record improves to 2-1. 

Volquez is projected to start again on Saturday against the White Sox.

Royals' Edinson Volquez dwells on one bad pitch to Oswaldo Arcia
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez enjoyed a "fantastic" outing, according to manager Ned Yost, but the right-hander told reporters he regretted one of pitches he made to the Twins on Wednesday, per MLB.com.

"Everything was good all night," Volquez said. "I was throwing a lot of strikes. The whole game I threw well -- just one bad pitch."

Oswaldo Arcia crushed a 2-1 fastball off Volquez for a two-run home run, which proved to be the difference in a 3-1 defeat to Minnesota. Volquez shook off catcher Salvador Perez, which led to Arcia's pivotal home run.

"Salvy called a changeup, I threw a fastball that came back over the middle of the plate," Volquez said. "Salvy wanted a changeup down and away. I was just trying to come in and didn't get it in."
