Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Billy Butler opened the scoring with a two-run double and compiled three hits for the game, while James Shields struck out 10 to pick up career win No. 100 in the Royals' 6-1 victory over the White Sox.

Shields (13-9) outdueled counterpart Chris Sale in style, as the 31-year-old reached double-digit strikeouts for the second time in three starts. He went seven innings, with his only blemish a solo home run to Gordon Beckham.

With the victory, Kansas City reached the 85-win plateau for the first time in 24 years. Emilio Bonifacio went 2-for-4 to knock in a pair of runs, while Alex Gordon and Lorenzo Cain finished with an RBI apiece.

Sale (11-14) had allowed just two runs in 24 innings against Kansas City this season coming in, but gave up twice that amount on Friday over just 5 1/3 frames. He was tagged for nine hits and struck out five.

The White Sox have dropped the first two of this four-game set and 22 of their last 28 overall. Without a win in one of these last two games, Chicago will notch its first 100-loss campaign since 1970.
