CHICAGO -- The Royals are complementing their solid defence and pitching with a potent offence. Nike Huarache Donna . Salvador Perez hit a three-run homer and Kansas City completed a three-game sweep of the Chicago White Sox with a 6-3 win Sunday. James Shields (8-3) won his fifth straight decision and the Royals extended their season-high win streak to seven games. Shields pitched out of trouble throughout his outing. Shields allowed three runs and 10 hits in six innings. Greg Holland pitched a scoreless ninth for his 20th save in 21 chances. The Royals havent lost with Shields on the mound since May 2, and hes 5-0 in eight starts because of the Royals 42 runs of support. Eric Hosmer also hit a two-run home run for the Royals. "This series we played on all cylinders," Shields said. "We pitched, we hit, we played some good defence. We drew our walks, we had good situational hitting and good timely hitting. "I think this is the first series all year that we really hit on all cylinders, so it is nice to see. Alejandro De Aza had a two-run double for the White Sox, who lost their fourth straight game. Starter Andre Rienzo (4-4) allowed six runs and six hits in six innings. The White Sox have lost 10 of their past 11 home games against the Royals been outscored 53-20 in them. "Obviously theyre playing good baseball and were scuffling a little bit," Gordon Beckham said. "You know, its part of (the game). Its frustrating, but we played a pretty good game today. Grinding out at-bats, try to do some good things. It just didnt go our way." With one out in the first inning, Hosmer connected on a 1-2 pitch for a two-run shot to centre. It was his fourth of the season. "Were getting off to early leads," Hosmer said. "Were giving our pitchers breathing room early. The way they have been throwing for us all year they have been lights out. Now to give them nice breathing room early and get some leads and not let them to be fine with their pitches and let them go out there and let the defence work." With the Royals up 2-1 in the third inning with two outs, Billy Butler was hit by Rienzos pitch. Alex Gordon drew a walk then Perez followed with a home run to left, giving the Royals a 5-1 lead. It was Perezs seventh of the season. Mike Moustakas scored from second on Jarrod Dysons RBI single in the fourth inning after he was initially ruled out on a force at second base. The call was overturned after a challenge. Adam Eaton led off the first inning with a hard grounder that went underneath Hosmers glove at first. Eaton wound up with a stand-up triple. One pitch later, Shields appeared to have Eaton picked off at third base, but plate umpire Paul Emmel ruled that Shields did not step off the rubber and awarded Eaton home. Royals manager Ned Yost argued the balk and was tossed by Emmel as he was headed back to the dugout. Yost then confronted Emmel for another animated conversation before leaving the game. "I said something when I was walking away that made me sit in this office," Yost said. "I dont think I ever got kicked out before the first out in the bottom of the first. I just felt really strongly that was a good play." De Aza had a two-run double off Shields in the fourth inning. NOTES: Yost was ejected for the third time this season. ... White Sox LHP John Danks is scheduled to start on Tuesday against the Giants. He is 2-1 with a 2.11 ERA in his past three starts. ... Eaton finished the game with three hits. ... White Sox C Tyler Flowers had the day off. He is in a 0-for-22 slump. After a strong start Flowers average has dropped to .250. Puma Suede Heart Reset . - Considering where Jeff Gordon was after Richmond, left out of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship in part due to some late-race shenanigans, he couldnt have been happier on Sunday. Nike Cortez Saldi .C. -- Al Jefferson knows few people will be giving the Charlotte Bobcats a chance to upset the Miami Heat in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. http://www.hypixs.com/puma-basket-heart-patent.html . -- Craig Anderson has quite a record against his former team, the Florida Panthers.Tom Scudamore is keeping his fingers crossed he has made the right decision after siding with Ballynagour in the Crabbies Grand National on Saturday. The leading jockey, who has not been seen in competitive action since suffering a heavy fall at Uttoxeter on March 19, will make his comeback at Aintree on Thursday, when his rides include Betfred Bowl outsider Dynaste.Scudamore is set for a big afternoon on National day, when he will reunited with brilliant World Hurdle hero Thistlecrack in the Liverpool Stayers Hurdle before getting the leg-up on David Pipes Ballynagour in the National. Im not going to have any rides before Aintree, but Im feeling great and cant wait to get back, said the jockey.Im riding Dynaste on Thursday, but itll be a fairly quiet day and then it will be all systems go for Friday and Saturday.Scudamore has chosen Ballynagour over two other Pond House inmates in Soll (Conor OFarrell), who has completed in two previous Nationals, and Vieux Lion Rouge (James Reveley).He said: It was a very tough decision as all three have a similar chance.Soll loves it round there, but is higher in the weights now, while Vieux Lion Rouge is an improving young horse.I went for Ballynagour as he has some very strong form with the likes of Cue Card and Silviniaco Conti and his run at Cheltenham suggested he is coming back to form.The riders father, Peter Scudamore, was an eight-times champion jockey, but famously never managed to win the Grand National.Scudamore jnr is well known for showing emotion after riding a big-race winner, but he dare not even dream of landing the biggest prize of them all on Merseyside.I havent even thought about it. Im just concentrating on getting the job done, he said.Ballynagours owner Allan Stennett has been involved with a number of previous Crabbies Grand National runners, most notably Blowing Wind, who he owned in partnership with Peter Deal and John Dale, and finished third in both 2001 and 2002.Stennett said: Ballynagour is a bit like Blowing Wind in that he has good form over shorter distances of between two and a half to three miles.The horse has had a problem with bleeding in some of his races but what he has shown since we have had him is that he does seem to show his best form in the spring.After his run in the Betfred Bowl last year, when he ran Silviniaco Conti to a head, he had me in tears. He appeared to show improved form that day, about 20lb above his handicap mark. Some people questioned the form but I pointed out that he had the likes of Holywell, Smad Place and Menorah behind him.After Aintree last year, he went out to France and won the Grade Two Prix La Barka. Although officially it is a hurdle race, the hurdles at Auteuil are more like fences.We are going to the Crabbies Grand National with him on Saturday and the nerves are jangling! I think he goes there with a chance although the connections of the 39 other runners will be feeling the same I am sure. Sky Racing Tickets Fast, secure racing tickets: Exclusive racing offers near you Rebecca Curtis revealed Brian Hughes will be aboard OFaolains Boy and Trevor Whelan will ride stablemate The Romford Pele.OFaolains Boy, winner of the 2014 RSA Chase, was seventh in last months Cheltenham Gold Cup.The Romford Pele was eighth over hurdles in the Coral Cup and is the last horse guaranteed a run in the Grand National as the 40th on the list.Curtis said: I think Brian has a good record round Aintree and hes a straightforward horse. Im delighted to have Brian riding him.The other horse gets in with a nice, low weight and I think the race should suit him. Hell definitely stay and he has a touch of class. Leadding owners Gigginstown House Stud are set to have three runners, with retained rider Bryan Cooper having the choice of First Lieutenant, Rule The World and Sir Des Champs. Nike Cortez Nere. Gigginstown Stud manager Eddie OLeary said: Bryan will ride one, David Mullins will ride another and well see who is available to ride the third horse.Nina Carberry is not expecting to have a ride if Knock House fails to make the cut.Carberry, who has completed the National course on four of her five rides, has partnered Mick Channons chaser twice this season, winning at Cheltenham in November and finishing fourth in the Kim Muir last month.However, he currently need two horses above him in the list to come out to get a run.Carberry said: Hopefully Ill ride him (Knock House) if he gets in. You never know how theyll take to it until they go, so well see.Fergal OBrien has resigned himself to the likelihood Grand National regular Alvarado will miss out on a place in the starting line-up.Alvarado has finished fourth for the last two years, but the 11-year-old is number 48 on the list.OBrien said: Its like complaining about the weather - its one of those things and theres nothing we can do about it.Thats the way it goes, you have to roll with it.Should Alvarado not make the cut, OBrien will aim him at the Coral Scottish Grand National at Ayr on April 16.In the new order of elimination, Kerry Lees Bishops Road needs just one horse to come out as he is number 41 thanks to his victory in the Betfred Grand National at Haydock in February.Dr Richard Newlands Pineau De Re, the Grand National hero two years ago, is number 46, while the well-fancied Cause Of Causes, trained by Gordon Elliott, is 49. Robbie Dunne is excited about having his first ride in the big race.The 31-year-old, who partners the Dermot McLoughlin-trained Vics Canvas, has enjoyed clear rounds over Aintrees unique fences on his only two attempts so far - he finished fourth in the Betfred Becher Chase in 2014 and fifth in the same race in 2015.He said: Im really looking forward to riding in the Crabbies Grand National - its what you dream about when you first get involved in racing.Its any Jump jockeys dream. Riding over the Grand National fences is totally different to riding in any other race - its a real test of horse and jockey, and a great thrill.Jeremiah McGrath will have his first National ride on the Nicky Henderson-trained Triolo DAlene.McGrath commented: Hes already won over these fences which is always nice (Crabbies Topham Chase 2013).Hes a great jumper and hes in good form at home at the moment - hes been working and schooling well so Im really looking forward to Saturday.Another drying day at Aintree has seen the going descriptions tighten slightly, despite four millimetres of overnight rain at the course.The Grand National Course at Aintree is now described as Good to Soft, Soft in places at the Canal Turn as against Good to Soft, Soft in places yesterday afternoon.The going has also changed on the Mildmay Course and is now Good to Soft, Good in Places from Good to Soft, while the Hurdle Course remains Good to Soft, Soft in places in the home straight.Andrew Tulloch, Regional Head of Racing Jockey Club Racecourses North West and Clerk of the Course at Aintree, said at 4.45pm: It has been another drying day, with temperatures getting up to 12 Celsius.The forecast is for unsettled weather and we could have rain each day from showers, along with sunny intervals and cooler conditions.Showers, being unpredictable and intermittent, may deliver between two and five millimetres of rain each day.There is plenty of moisture in the ground after a wet winter.
