Guthrie strong in Royals' win over White Sox

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jeremy Guthrie, Wade Davis and Greg Holland combined on a four-hitter and the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White Sox 3-1 Wednesday night to avoid being swept in their three-game series.

The White Sox had scored 14 runs and hit five home runs in the first two games.

Guthrie, who is winless in seven starts since an April 9 victory over Tampa Bay, left after seven innings with the score 1-1. He gave up three hits, walked two and struck out two.

Wade Davis (3-1) struck out two in a flawless eighth and has tossed 10 scoreless innings in his last nine appearances. Greg Holland logged his 13th save in 14 chances, but not before giving up a single to Dayan Viciedo and walking Adam Dunn in the ninth.

Left-hander Jose Quintana (2-4) gave up three runs on eight hits over 7 1-3 innings for Chicago.
