Royals, short on sleep, visit White Sox

Forgive Kansas City Royals players if they yawn during the series opener against the Chicago White Sox on Friday night at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago.

It's not that players are uninterested. They're simply tired.

The Royals are coming off a rain-delayed 6-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays less than 24 hours earlier. The game ended around 12:15 a.m. CT on Friday, after which the Royals showered, dressed and headed to the airport for a flight to Chicago in the wee hours of the morning.
