KANSAS CITY, Mo. Nike Free Run+ 3 Laufschuhe Blau Weiß . -- Jordan Danks just had to wait a short while for a second chance. The backup outfielder atoned for his baserunning blunder in the ninth inning by hitting a solo home run in the 11th that lifted the Chicago White Sox over the Kansas City Royals 2-1 Monday. "I knew that was going to be my shot to do something," Danks said. "I wasnt trying to do too much. But you got a guy throwing 97, 98 (mph), hes going to provide most of the power. Like coaches have been telling you since Little League, get something good to hit." Danks connected with two outs off Kelvin Herrera (2-3) for his first homer of the season. The White Sox avoided a three-game sweep and won for only the fifth time in 18 tries in Kauffman Stadium. Danks entered in the ninth as a pinch-runner. Moments later, he got caught in a rundown between third and home after Alexei Ramirez hit a tying, bases-loaded infield single with two outs. "It makes it a little bit better, yeah," Danks said with a grin. "I told them I did it on purpose so I could come up and hit a homer." Chicago starter Chris Sale, who spent most of the day matching James Shields pitch for pitch, said the dugout "went nuts" when Danks homered. "Thats always fun to watch," Sale said. "Emotions are high. Youre tense. Someone goes up and does that, its fun." The White Sox trailed 1-0 before loading the bases with no outs in the ninth. After Paul Konerko grounded into a home-to-first double play, Danks entered as a pinch-runner at second base for Adam Dunn. Conor Gillaspie was intentionally walked to load the bases. Ramirez followed with an infield single up the middle that made it 1-all, but Danks was tagged out on the play, ending the rally. "He got caught in no mans land," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "Even in the dugout, youre thinking about trying to send him. Its too late to tell him to stop. That wasnt his fault. Thats on us. Thats just an aggressive play. Id rather be like that than not be aggressive." Jesse Crain (1-1) pitched one scoreless inning for the win. Addison Reed worked the 11th for his 11th save in 12 opportunities. Shields threw eight shutout innings and handed a 1-0 lead to Greg Holland starting the ninth. Royals manager Ned Yost said he was not tempted to let Shields work the ninth. "Everybody has their job to do and Shields had done his," Yost said. "He threw eight shutout innings. It was a one-run game. The runs make all the difference. If it was a two-run or a three-run lead, yeah. But in a one-run game, (if) you send him out hes either going to win it or lose it. You let the closer go out and try to do his job." Shields, who lost to Sale 1-0 on opening day in Chicago, allowed two hits and struck out a season-best nine. He walked two. "I felt good out there," Shields said. "I felt like I had all my pitches working. I struggled early in the game getting ahead of hitters, and I gave up a couple of walks. But for the most part it was a tough battle. When youre facing Sale, its going to be tough." Sale was almost as sharp, going 7 1-3 innings and allowing one run on six hits, with five strikeouts and no walks. "I kind of fell into a groove," Sale said. "Sweeps will kill you. James Shields was awesome, actually. But to keep our heads in the game and grind it out, it says a lot about who we are." Alex Gordon hit a leadoff single in the first for Kansas City and scored when Billy Butler lined a double down the left-field line. After Gordons two-out single in the third, Sale retired 15 straight batters until Salvador Perez doubled into the gap with two out in the seventh.

RHP Jake Peavy, who missed his last two scheduled starts with back spasms, is set to start for Chicago on Wednesday against the New York Mets. ... This was the makeup for the game that was postponed the previous Friday because of freezing rain. ...

 On the strength of this achievement, Rolex would eventually Replica Watches become the world’s largest manufacturer of chronometer-certified wristwatches. The Replica Watch Geneva-based brand perfected the concept of the modern watch in 1926 by inventing the waterproof “Oyster” case to protect the movement inside and then, in 1931, by Fake Watches developing the self-winding “Perpetual” rotor movement. Today, all Rolex Oyster Perpetual Watch Replicas watches are officially certified chronometers, carrying on the heritage of the pioneering role the brand played in bringing precision to the wristwatch.
