Kansas City Royals defeat Chicago White Sox, 6-5

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The White Sox and their fans didn't have umpire Joe West to blame for their Game 1 loss Saturday night.

Bad baserunning? Yes. The absence of a clutch hit? Of course.

But by the time Kansas City's Yuniesky Betancourt grounded a walk-off single through the middle of the infield in the 11th inning, it was obvious where the weight of another heart-breaking Sox loss would fall. It has been the usual suspect for the last few weeks now.
