KANSAS CITY, Mo. Cheap Miami Heat Jerseys . -- The clock has not struck midnight yet for the Kansas City Royals to defend their World Series championship, but it is getting close.The Royals were not just swept in a four-game series by the Oakland Athletics, who are in last place in the American League West, but were embarrassed. They fell 14-5 Thursday and did not score a run until the ninth inning.They were outscored 43-12, the most runs they have allowed in a four-game series in Royals history. The previous high was 41 by the New York Yankees in 1998 and Minnesota Twins in 2006.Its been tough, said Christian Colon, who hit a three-run homer with two out in the ninth for his first career home run. Were not used to this, so its hard. Its hard to really enjoy this because you play to win the game. Thats what matters the most at the end of the day.The Royals chances to get back into postseason are rapidly fading with 16 games left.The Royals, who have lost eight of their past nine Kauffman Stadium games, continue this eight-game homestand with four games against the Chicago White Sox.The White Sox are coming off a 2-1 victory over the Cleveland Indians, who are running away with the American League Central. Jose Abreu homered for the White Sox, while Carlos Sanchez had a walk-off RBI-single.He (Abreu) started out a bit slow but when you look at the end of the year hes probably going to have numbers there as impressive as anybody in the league, White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. If he can get a few more homers and everything else, its historic stuff hes chasing (30 HR, 100 RBI).The White Sox will start All-Star left-hander Chris Sale in the series opener Friday. Sale, who leads the American League with a 3.03 ERA and five complete-games, lost 2-0 to the Royals on Sunday in Chicago.Sale is among the AL pitching leaders with 205 strikeouts, 15 victories, 201 2/3 innings, .220 opponents batting average, 2.55 road ERA and 9.1 strikeouts per nine innings.Sale usually has little difficulty with left-handed hitters, but Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer is 18-for-45, .400, off him. Hosmer is the only left-handed hitter with three home runs off Sale.Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar has a .354 average, 23-for-65, with one home run, off Sale. Royals designated hitter Kendrys Morales has only a .190 average in 21 at-bats off Sale, but two of his four hits are home runs.The Royals will start right-hander Ian Kennedy, who outdueled Sale Sunday, pitching six scoreless innings and allowing just one hit, a leadoff single to Adam Eaton, but worked around four walks, while striking out six.Kennedy is 5-0 with a 2.16 ERA, yielding 12 earned runs in 50 innings, since the beginning of August.Kennedy is 1-1 with a 4.00 ERA in three starts this season against the White Sox. He has a 2-1 record with a 3.38 ERA in his career against the White Sox.It seems unlikely Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain will appear in the series as he continues to nurse a sore left wrist. He has played in only game this month and could be out for the remainder of the season. Cheap Heat Jerseys China . -- Gus Malzahn finally had his day in Fayetteville. Cheap NBA Jerseys . Soukalova missed only one target and completed the 15-kilometre course in 40 minutes, 32.6 seconds for both victories in this seasons individual discipline. Darya Domracheva of Belarus was second, 34. http://www.cheapheatjerseys.com/ . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. -- Joey Logano won the Xfinity Series race at Watkins Glen International for the second straight year Saturday, holding off Team Penske teammate Brad Keselowski for nearly the entire race.Just as he did a year ago, Logano started from the pole in the Zippo 200 and dominated, leading 67 laps. Keselowski, who started second, was in contention until a broken track bar mount sent him to the pits with six laps to go.It was Loganos 26th win in the series and the first Xfinity triumph for Penske since November, a span of 21 races.Paul Menard was second, followed by Kyle Larson, Daniel Suarez, Trevor Bayne and points leader Elliott Sadler.Kyle Busch challenged for the lead early, but damage to his cars splitter forced him to the pits. He also was involved in a nine-car crash that sent him to the garage.Running second, Busch had to pit during the races first caution for repairs to the splitter, which was damaged running over the tracks new curbing. A nine-car crash in the high-speed esses damaged Buschs No. 18 Toyota even more after the race restarted, sending him to the garage and bringing out a red flag on Lap 19.Ryan Sieg precipitated the pileup, getting into Todd Bodine as the cars snaked uphill into the narrowest section of the track with virtually no visibility ahead.I got sideways. I thought I had it, but it hooked right, said Bodine, who grew up in nearby Chemung, New York, and considers Watkins Glen his home track. It was a hard hit. The car is junk. Its the first time Ive ever wrecked at Watkins Glen. I know these guys want to make a name for themselves. Sometimes, youve got to give. I was in line, and I think Ryan thought he was just going to dive in there.Bodine careenedd sideways into the wall after contact with Blake Koch and cars began bouncing off one another in a chain-reaction crash, also taking out Darrell Wallace Jr. Cheap Heat Jerseys Authentic. , J.J. Yeley, Ryan Ellis and Tomy Drissi. Bodine, Drissi and Koch were treated at the infield care center and released.Just bad luck we continue to have, said a dejected Wallace, who is ninth in points. Hopefully we can shake it off. I felt really good where we were at. Just not our day.Keselowski scooted past unscathed on the left side to remain in contention in 10th.By the midpoint of the 82-lap race, Logano, Keselowski and Larson were running 1-2-3, and during a round of pit stops Larson pitted from the lead. He exited pit road just ahead of the Penske cars moments before Erik Jones ran out of gas while running third to bring out another caution.Ty Dillon then inherited the lead but was penalized for a commitment-line violation while heading to the pits.When the race restarted, Larson and Suarez were on the front row but not for long. One lap later the Penske cars were 1-2, with Logano leading the way as it became a two-car race to the finish.Derrike Cope brought out the sixth caution on Lap 60 when he slid into the runoff area in the chicane and the front of his No. 70 Chevrolet exploded. He was not injured, and after exiting the car he was unsure exactly what had happened.Keselowski challenged Logano on the restart and dogged him as the laps wound down, trying to pressure him into a mistake. Logano maintained his slim edge and was home free when his teammate had to pit, winning by 1.5 seconds. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
