Giolito, Garcia lead White Sox past fading Royals 8-1

CHICAGO (AP) Rookie right-hander Lucas Giolito pitched seven strong innings and Avisail Garcia drove in three runs with his 18th homer and a double to lead the Chicago White Sox past the fading Kansas City Royals 8-1 on Sunday.

Kevan Smith had a solo homer and a single for two RBIs as Chicago took two of three from the Royals and dropped them 5 1/2 games behind Minnesota for the second AL wild card. Kansas City has seven games left.

Lorenzo Cain's homer in the fourth was the only run off Giolito (3-3).
