White Sox starter Dylan Cease looks to stay hot against Royals

That Dylan Cease All-Star Game snub looks worse by the day, with the Chicago White Sox right-hander still sporting a sub-2.00 ERA while in the midst of a five-game hot streak in advance of his next outing Thursday.

Cease (12-4, 1.98 ERA) will conclude the White Sox's four-game road series against the Kansas City Royals in an afternoon start. Chicago will face Royals right-hander Zack Greinke (3-7, 4.58) before returning home for a weekend series against the Detroit Tigers.

If the Royals can solve Cease, they can claim their second-consecutive four-game series after defeating the White Sox 8-3 on Wednesday night. The Royals scored two runs in the sixth to tie the score, one in the seventh to take the lead on MJ Melendez's home run and four more in the eighth to ice the victory.
