SURPRISE, Ariz. (KSNT)- Kansas City will host American League Central rival, Chicago White Sox on Wednesday afternoon.

The Kansas City Royals were defeated by the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday, 3-2. The offense didn’t collect very much run support until a two-run homerun hit by Edward Olivares in the top of the seventh inning.

The game ended in the top of the seventh due to the new rules of spring training.

On Tuesday, Daniel Lynch was handed the loss and Dillon Maples was awarded the win for the Chicago Cubs.

On Wednesday, prospect Carlos Hernandez will be on the bump for the Royals and Kade McClure will be on the mound for the South Siders.
