ABOUT LAST NIGHT…

Royals 3, White Sox 2

Greg Holland set the Royals franchise for saves with his 46th of the season. Holland has 101 strikeouts in 66 innings pitched this year. To give you an idea of how good that is, Jeremy Guthrie has 111 strikeouts in 211.2 innings pitched. KC also set a franchise records of strikeouts in a season for a pitching staff.

The Royals have three more games remaining with the White Sox before the end of the season. Their 84 wins this season is the most since 1993.
