Greg Holland perfect in closing out White Sox
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Royals needed closer Greg Holland to nail down their second straight win and provide some momentum and he did just that Wednesday.

Holland retired the White Sox in order after his team took the lead in the ninth inning. He fanned Alexei Ramirez and Conor Gillaspie to nail down his 26th save. He required just 14 pitches to complete the job.

James Shields pitches well for seven innings in no-decision
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals ace James Shields pitched like an ace Wednesday against the host White Sox, but came away with a no-decision.

Shields surrendered just one run on six hits in seven innings. He walked one and fanned seven while yielding only a first-inning single to Adam Dunn for the lone run. The performance was a strong one for Shields, who has been a bit inconsistent of late.

He will try to take his momentun and run with it Tuesday against Minnesota.

Eric Hosmer leaves with 'decreased grip strength' Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Eric Hosmer left Wednesday's game due to "decreased grip strength in his hand," according to the Kansas City Star.

Hosmer received three plate appearances during the game before being pulled in the eighth inning. He's been dealing with a hand issue all week. Hosmer took a pitch off the hand Sunday against Jon Lester, and hadn't been in the lineup until Wednesday. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined with the injury.

Eric Hosmer leaves after two at-bats Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer left Wednesday's game after just two at-bats.

Hosmer was dealing with a hand injury prior to the game, but managed to talk his way into the lineup. The club has not announced why Hosmer was pulled from the game, but that could be in play. Hosmer finished the game 0 for 2, with an RBI. He was replaced by a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Veteran left-hander Bruce Chen is set to start Sunday for the Royals against visiting Cleveland, again in place of Jason Vargas, who is still recovering from an appendectomy.

Chen filled in quite admirably Tuesday night by yielding one run in five innings against the White Sox and earning the victory.
