CHICAGO -- It was a night of individual achievements for the Kansas City Royals and another step closer to a dubious distinction for the Chicago White Sox on Friday. Royals pitcher James Shields struck out 10 and scattered four hits over seven innings for his 100th career win, and the Royals beat Chicago 6-1 to ensure the White Sox of their worst record since 1970. Shields (13-9) gave up just one run and walked one as Chicago lost its fourth straight. "Im really excited I got my 100th win today," Shields said. "Im just proud of my season this year. A hundred wins in the big leagues is a pretty special moment." Also receiving accolades was Royals third baseman Jamey Carroll, whose fourth-inning double was the 1,000th hit of his major league career. "Its something one day you can look back and have a lot of pride in, when your kids are asking what that balls for or what that jersey is all about," Carroll said, adding with a laugh, "only 22 more years to 3,000." Carrolls teammates put a bottle of 1,000 Island salad dressing in his locker as a memento of his achievement. The mood in the White Sox locker room was more sombre. At 62-98 and with two games remaining, the White Sox will finish with the second-most losses in franchise history, ahead of only the team that went 56-106 more than four decades ago. "Nobody wants that," manager Robin Ventura said before the game of reaching 100 losses. "Is it going to be the big difference going into next year? Probably not, but nobody wants that." The White Sox will finish last in their division for the first time since 1989 (69-92), and will end the season with a losing record against every team in the American League. Billy Butler led the Royals with three hits and two RBIs, while Emilio Bonifacio drove in two runs with two hits. The Royals 85th win is their most since 1989 when they were 92-70. The Royals took a 3-0 lead in the first off White Sox starter Chris Sale (11-14). Bonifacio walked and stole second, moved to third on Eric Hosmers single, and both scored on Butlers double. Butler scored on Lorenzo Cains single. "To give Shields a 3-0 lead in the first, its quite comforting," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "Hes given us not only No. 1 starter stuff, hes provided great leadership, has been a great example for our guys. Hes a big part of our season and why were at 85 wins now." Kansas City, which has won 21 of its last 31, made it 4-0 in the fourth on Carrolls milestone double and scored on Bonifacios single. Sale was lifted with one out in the top of the sixth. He gave up four runs and nine hits, walked one and struck out five. He also hit a batter. "I think thats a reoccurring theme every year: My last (start is) always a bad one," Sale said. "Hopefully, I can fix that next year. I just didnt have it tonight." Sales replacement, Jacob Petricka, promptly gave up two runs. Alcides Escobar singled and scored on Alex Gordons double. Gordon scored on another single by Bonifacio. Chicagos run came on Gordon Beckhams fifth home run of the season in the sixth. The following batter, Alexei Ramirez, appeared to follow with another homer, but Gordon grabbed the ball at the fence in left field. NOTES: Having fallen out of the wild card race, the Royals are playing out the string this weekend. But Yost is proud of what his team accomplished in the second half of the season: "We have more wins than anybody in the American League since the All-Star break except Detroit, and theyre tied with us (coming into Friday). We feel like our organization has made great progress. We got to experience what it was like playing deep into September in a playoff race and it was great experience." . White Sox INF Jeff Keppinger had a successful debridement procedure on his right shoulder Thursday. Recovery will be two to three months. Keppinger should be back to full strength by the start of spring training. . White Sox 1B Paul Konerko, who will not make a decision on whether hell retire or return for one more season for at least a month, needs just six bases to break Frank Thomas team record for total bases (3,949). www.pacersblackfridayjersey.com/danny-granger-black-friday-jersey/ .

Most importantly, they feel as though they are starting to string some good games together. http://www.pacersblackfridayjersey.com/paul-george-black-friday-jersey/. Jed Ortmeyer scored twice early in the third and Matt Hackett made 23 saves Friday as the Houston Aeros beat Binghamton 3-1. Warren Peters added an empty-net goal for Houston, which leads the series 1-0 and hosts Game 2 on Saturday. www.pacersblackfridayjersey.com/david-west-black-friday-jersey/ . Bautista is the majors reigning home run king and the top vote-getter for next weeks all-star game. He was excited to be selected by Bostons David Ortiz, a fellow Dominican, as one of the ALs four players to take part in the home run derby. www.pacersblackfridayjersey.com/reggie-miller-black-friday-jersey/ . Torres, also suspended last season, was deemed a repeat offender. He will lose US$42,682.93 in salary. The incident occurred during the first period of the Coyotes 4-2 win in Minnesota on Saturday. DALLAS -- Free agent slugger Prince Fielder was in Texas on Friday to talk with the two-time American League champion Rangers. The visit by Fielder comes at the same time the Rangers are in the closing stages of their 30-day negotiating window with Japanese pitcher Yu Darvish. Fielders visit to Texas on Friday was first reported by USA Today. Fielder was there to meet with Rangers officials, according to the person familiar with his situation who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the discussions werent meant to be public. The 27-year-old first baseman made US$15.55 million last season with Milwaukee, including a $50,000 bonus for starting the all-star game, after signing a record single-year deal for an arbitration-eligible player last January. He hit .299 with 38 homers and 120 RBIs as the Brewers won the NL Central for its first division title since 1982, when they were still in the AL. A first-round pick by the Brewers in 2002, Fielder became the youngest player in big league history to hit 50 homers in a season when he did it in 2007, and hes appeeared in all but one of Milwaukees games over the last three years.dddddddddddd. Mitch Moreland, who also played in the outfield, started 99 games at first base for Texas last season, his second with the Rangers. He hit .259 with 16 homers in 134 games overall while dealing with right wrist soreness that required off-season surgery. Michael Young started 36 games at first base and Mike Napoli 35. The Rangers last month bid a record $51.7 million under the posting system to win the right to negotiate with the 25-year-old Darvish. Their negotiating period ends Wednesday at 4 p.m. CST. The Rangers pay the posting fee only if they sign the 6-foot-5 pitcher. Rangers president and Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan said Thursday night that he was impressed by his first meeting with Darvish, when the pitcher visited Texas last week. Ryan also expressed optimism of getting a contract done by the deadline. Ryan gave no indication of any pending meetings with Fielder and his agent, Scott Boras. ------ AP Sports Writer Ronald Blum contributed to this report from New York. ' ' '
