Gordon's bat, Keller's arm lead Royals past White Sox, 3-1

CHICAGO (AP) In a dim season for the last-place Kansas City Royals, rookie Brad Keller has been one of the few bright spots.

Keller pitched five solid innings, Alex Gordon homered and Jorge Bonifacio had a go-ahead RBI single in the decisive sixth inning for the Royals, who rallied past the Chicago White Sox 3-1 on Saturday night.

Nicky Delmonico homered in the second inning off Keller (6-5), driving a changeup over the right-center field fence. That was the only blemish against the 6-foot-5 right-hander, who allowed seven hits, struck out five and walked none.
