KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kendrys Morales started the season scuffling to get his average above .200. Hes finishing up a lot better.Morales homered for his 1,000th career hit and drove in four runs, Danny Duffy pitched effectively into the eighth inning and the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White Sox 10-3 Sunday.First and foremost, I didnt even know I had 999 hits, Morales said with catching coach Pedro Grifol as his translator.Morales was hitting .191 on June 5, but in his past 20 games he is hitting .359 with a .705 slugging percentage, bringing his season total to .261 with 38 home runs and 85 RBI.Obviously, I didnt have a good start, but the season is a very long season, Morales said. I was able to get back on track and finish strong.Duffy (12-2) picked up his first victory since Aug. 21. He struck out eight and gave up three runs.Again, it sounds boring, but its a simple mindset, Duffy said. I trust my fastball and everything else plays off of it. Thats probably why I dont try to nibble with it.Morales homered in the sixth with Paulo Orlando aboard. Orlando reached base four times -- two doubles, a walk and hit by pitch -- and scored three runs.Morales contributed a RBI single in the first and doubled home Eric Hosmer in the fourth.Hosmer drove in three runs, giving him a career-best 95 RBI. Whit Merrifield had three hits and two RBI.Alex Gordon ended an 0-for-21 drought with his 16th home run, which splashed into the upper right-field fountain.Todd Frazier hit his 37th homer, a White Sox record for a third baseman.Jose Quintana (12-11) was removed after four innings. He faced 24 batters, giving up 10 hits and three walks.It wasnt the normal stuff, the stuff you expect from him, White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. They hit him pretty hard, too. He just wasnt locating the way he usually does. It was just an off day for him. We didnt do much offensively against Duffy. He was throwing it pretty good. But, you know, just a rare one for Q.Quintanas career record against the Royals dropped to 1-9.DOUBLE CHALLENGEThe third inning included a 4-minute, 25-second review that included both managers making a challenge on the same play. Ned Yost of the Royals claimed shortstop Tim Anderson did not touch second base before throwing to first on Hosmers grounder. White Sox manager Robin Ventura challenged that Orlando violated the slide rule. After the review, the call on the field was overturned with Orlando ruled safe and the slide was legal.We felt like when you slide and you cant reach the bag thats enough for me to feel like its not a real slide or a bona fide slide, Ventura said. Again, that stuff is written in a way that it could go either way.TRAINERS ROOMWhite Sox: INF Tyler Saladino was out for the second straight game with a left calf issue. Hes getting better, Ventura said. Theres nothing mechanically wrong in there. Hes just sore and you just have to treat it. ... DH Justin Morneau missed his sixth straight game with neck discomfort.UP NEXTWhite Sox: LHP Carlos Rodon, who is 5-1 with a 2.77 ERA in his past eight starts, will start the series finale.Royals: RHP Yordano Ventura has allowed at least 11 baserunners in each of his past three starts with 12 walks and 23 hits.

Cheap Detroit Tigers Jerseys . Blackwood, 28, has played the last three seasons in the San Diego Padres system, including the past two summers with Class AA San Antonio of the Texas League. WASHINGTON -- Time is running out for the New York Mets, who fell 10 games behind the first-place Washington Nationals in the National League East following an 8-1 loss Monday night.That was big for us to win that game, Washington manager Dusty Baker said.New York (76-68) is very much in the NL wild-card hunt, and that is one reason manager Terry Collins didnt have much patience with starting pitcher Rafael Montero, who walked two with the bases loaded in the first inning and gave up six runs overall before he was lifted in the second.Tonight was certainly a downer, Collins said.The Mets are still 16-6 in the past 22 games, and they maintain a half-game lead on the St. Louis Cardinals in the battle for the final NL playoff position.They are rising to the challenge, which is evident in how they have played lately, Baker said of the Mets.Collins was asked about the teams recent surge and said it was a testament to the character of every player in the clubhouse.And of course, good pitching helps as well.Our young (players) have stepped up, which is very big for us, Collins said Monday.The teams will meet in the second game of the series Tuesday, when Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard (13-8, 2.48 ERA) faces Nationals right-hander A.J. Cole (1-2, 4.56 ERA).It will be just the fifth start of the year for Cole and the sixth of his major league career. His only previous appearance against the Mets came on Sept. 2, when he earned the win with six innings of one-run ball at New York.Cole is proving to be a much more mature pitcher than when he made his big league debut in April 2015 against the Braves in Atlanta.In his four starts this year, he has pitched at least five innings each time, and he has not allowed more than four runs in an outingg despite facing challenging road assignments such as in tiny Camden Yards against the Baltimore Orioles and Citi Field against the Mets earlier this month.ddddddddddddSyndergaard is the same age as Cole, 24, but he is already an established major-leaguer in his second season.He gave up four walks and six hits in five scoreless innings in his last start, a 6-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday. The hard-throwing right-hander has given up three runs in his past 27 innings.Syndergaard is 2/3 with a 3.02 ERA in seven career starts against the Nationals with 47 strikeouts and 13 walks. He lost to Cole and the Nationals 4-1 on Sept. 2, when he gave up two runs in seven innings.Several Washington hitters have fared well against Syndergaard.Ben Revere is hitting .364 in 11 at-bats against him, Wilson Ramos is at .333 in 12 trips, and Anthony Rendon and Bryce Harper are both hitting .313 in 16 at-bats against the Tuesday starter.A few Washington veterans have struggled against Syndergaard. Danny Espinosa is batting .167 in 12 at-bats, Jayson Werth is hitting .143 in 14 trips and Ryan Zimmerman is batting .125 in eight at-bats. Zimmerman has been in a slump for nearly a month, as was Ramos before he went 1-for-2 with two walks and two RBI on Monday.Following Syndergaards start, Robert Gsellman will pitch the series finale Wednesday at Washington against Tanner Roark. New York will start Bartolo Colon and Seth Lugo in the first two games of a weekend series at Minnesota. Beyond that, Collins said Montero would not remain in the rotation after his Monday outing.Who could take his place?Anybody, Collins said.
