KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Jose Quintana entered September in the AL Cy Young Award conversation with an 11-9 record and a 2.77 ERA.A trio of lackluster starts has taken him out of it.Quintana allowed six runs over four innings and the Chicago White Sox lost to the Kansas City Royals 10-3 on Sunday.Quintana (12-11) faced 24 batters, gave up a season-high 10 hits and three walks. It was his shortest outing since April 19, 2015 at Detroit.Its just a bad day. Quintana said. They hit me good, early, and thats all. That changed the game for me.Aside from a dominant outing last time out against Cleveland, Quintana has been lousy this month. Hes 1-2 with a 6.85 ERA in four September starts after going 4-1 with a 1.81 ERA in his previous eight outings. Quintanas career record against the Royals dropped to 1-9.It wasnt the normal stuff, the stuff you expect from him, White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. They hit him pretty hard, too. He just wasnt locating the way he usually does. It was just an off day for him.Todd Frazier hit his 37th homer, a White Sox record for a third baseman.It would be real nice, Frazier said about getting to 40. Always got to round the numbers up. We talk about that all the time, trying to get a couple here, a couple there. And there are a lot of opportunities. The more the guys get on base, theres more opportunity for me.Kendrys Morales homered for his 1,000th career hit and drove in four runs, and Royals starter Danny Duffy pitched effectively into the eighth inning.Morales was hitting .191 on June 5, but in his past 20 games he is hitting .359 with a .705 slugging percentage, bringing his season total to .261 with 38 home runs and 85 RBI.Duffy (12-2) picked up his first victory since Aug. 21. He struck out eight and gave up three runs.Morales homered in the sixth with Paulo Orlando aboard. Orlando reached base four times -- two doubles, a walk and hit by pitch -- and scored three runs.Morales contributed an RBI single in the first and doubled home Eric Hosmer in the fourth.Hosmer drove in three runs, giving him a career-best 95 RBI. Whit Merrifield had three hits and two RBI.Alex Gordon ended an 0-for-21 drought with his 16th home run, which splashed into the upper right-field fountain.DOUBLE CHALLENGEThe third inning included a 4-minute, 25-second review that included both managers making a challenge on the same play. Ned Yost of the Royals claimed shortstop Tim Anderson did not touch second base before throwing to first on Hosmers grounder. White Sox manager Robin Ventura challenged that Orlando violated the slide rule. After the review, the call on the field was overturned with Orlando ruled safe and the slide deemed legal.We felt like when you slide and you cant reach the bag thats enough for me to feel like its not a real slide or a bona fide slide, Ventura said. Again, that stuff is written in a way that it could go either way.TRAINERS ROOMWhite Sox: INF Tyler Saladino was out for the second straight game with a left calf issue. ... DH Justin Morneau missed his sixth straight game with neck discomfort.UP NEXTWhite Sox: LHP Carlos Rodon, who is 5-1 with a 2.77 ERA in his past eight starts, will start the series finale.Royals: RHP Yordano Ventura has allowed at least 11 baserunners in each of his past three starts with 12 walks and 23 hits. Nike Roshe Two Homme . But Bourque, who has missed three games with a lower-body injury, wont be in the lineup when the Habs travel to Buffalo to take on the Sabres on Wednesday. Nike Roshe One Flyknit . LOUIS -- Roman Polak was celebrating even before Alexander Steen scored the winning goal in Saturdays 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. http://www.pumacreepersrihanna.fr/nike-roshe-one-print-pas-cher.html .Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the St. Puma Rihanna Blanche Creepers . Then the Pacers gave Oladipo and his Orlando teammates the cold shoulder. Paul Georges buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter spurred a 21-4 run, finally sending Indiana past the Magic 97-87 in a tougher-than-expected opening night matchup. Nike Roshe Two Flyknit Rouge . The winner Saturday will remain in the elite 10-team field next year. "We talked about wanting to be disciplined and stick with our game plan and good things will come," Draisaitl said, who had two goals for the victors. A week after getting knocked around at The Palace of Auburn Hills, the Denver Nuggets have a chance to get even with the Detroit Pistons when the teams meet at Pepsi Center on Saturday night.Detroit manhandled the Nuggets from the start in a 103-86 win Nov. 5, and the loss is fresh on the minds of Denver players and coaches. The Pistons jumped out to a 20-4 lead and never looked back.It was a scenario that played out for the Nuggets against Golden State on Thursday. Like the game in Michigan, Denver got down early and could never get back into the game.The Nuggets hope to turn that around against the Pistons, who are coming off a 96-86 loss in San Antonio on Friday night.The Pistons enter Saturdays game relatively healthy. Point guard Reggie Jackson and forward Reggie Bullock have not played this year but the rest of the team is intact.Thats not the case for Denver. Guard Will Barton remains out with a sprained left ankle and forwards Wilson Chandler (hamstring) and Darrell Arthur (knee) are not expected to play.But that might not be Denvers biggest concern. The Nuggets have not taken care of the ball this year, which has contributed directly to two losses. They had 16 last week against the Pistons, and it was a problem yet again in the loss to the Warriors.We cannot continue to turn the ball over 18, 19 times a game if we want to give ourselves a chance to win, Denver coach Michael Malone said.The Nuggets are hoping they will get one of those turnovers back and maybe a chance to turn a loss into a defeat. In Tuesdays losss at Memphis, the officials ruled the Nuggets touched the ball last before it went out of bounds with 0.dddddddddddd7 seconds left, a call that was upheld by replay. Denver was leading by one and the Grizzlies won it on Marc Gasols buzzer-beater.However, the NBA took another look at the play and ruled the ball should have been given to Denver. The Nuggets have filed an official protest with the league and hope to replay the end of the game the next time they play Memphis.Whether they do it or not I have no idea, Malone said.That wont be a concern for the Pistons, who will be tired and playing at altitude after a tough game against the Spurs. Theyll be looking for their first win in Denver since 2009, which is also the last time they swept the season series from the Nuggets.Detroits defense is improved over last season, which has helped bail out a struggling offense.What youd like to be is good at both ends. Getting our defense established is more of the priority, Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy told The Detroit News. We try to work on both ends of the floor and theres been more emphasis on defense.Center Andre Drummond, who anchors the back end of the defense, is happy the focus has been on that end of the floor.Id rather we have a successful defensive night than a fantastic offensive night, Drummond told The Detroit News. When we have great defensive nights, offensively, it takes care of itself.
