CHICAGO (AP) Ryan O’Hearn got the ball from his first major league hit. Brett Phillips got his bats back.For one night at least [url=][/url ] , everything was all right with the Kansas City Royals.O’Hearn hit a two-run homer in his big league debut, helping Danny Duffy and the Royals beat the Chicago White Sox 4-2 on Tuesday.”Today was the most fun I had at a baseball field, once I kind of settled down a little bit, ever,” O’Hearn said. ”I’m ready to get back tomorrow.”Phillips also hit a two-run shot for last-place Kansas City, which had dropped four of five. Duffy (7-9) pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings, rebounding nicely from a rocky start against Detroit.It was Phillips’ first hit since he was acquired Friday in the trade that sent third baseman Mike Moustakas to Milwaukee. Phillips had to use Hunter Dozier’s bat for his Kansas City debut Sunday against the Yankees after his lumber got lost while he was flying to New York to join his new team.He was reunited with his bats in time for the series opener against Chicago, and he looked quite comfortable on his fifth career homer in the seventh.”It’s always a blessing to help the team win in any way you can,” Phillips said.The White Sox lost for the fifth time in six games. They wasted prime scoring opportunities in the fourth and eighth [url=]Roger Maris Jersey[/url] , and another threat in the sixth was curtailed by a mental mistake by Tim Anderson – prompting manager Rick Renteria to replace the young shortstop.Matt Davidson hit a two-run shot in the seventh for his eighth homer against the Royals this season. But Tim Hill got one out, Jason Hammel worked a rocky eighth and Wily Peralta finished for his sixth save.Playing in front of his parents, brother and sister, O’Hearn bounced to first in his first at-bat in the second. He came up again with one out and a runner on first in the fifth, and drove a 1-0 pitch from James Shields (4-13) over the wall in right .O’Hearn, an eighth-round pick in the 2014 draft who turned 25 on Thursday, was promoted from Triple-A Omaha before the game. He became the third player in franchise history to homer in his major league debut, joining Clint Hurdle in 1977 and Mark Quinn in 1999.”It was fun to watch,” Duffy said.O’Hearn also walked and scored on Phillips’ homer.Duffy allowed six hits [url=]Phil Rizzuto Jersey[/url] , struck out seven and walked four. The left-hander went 3-2 with a 3.38 ERA in six July starts.Duffy got some help when the speedy Anderson failed to run out a low liner to third baseman Rosell Herrera with runners on first and second in the sixth. Third base umpire Lance Barksdale ruled the ball hit the ground – it looked as if it might have been caught cleanly – and Herrera threw late to second.But Whit Merrifield just jogged over and lobbed the ball to first baseman Lucas Duda for the final out of the inning. Renteria then put Nicky Delmonico in left and moved Leury Garcia to shortstop before the start of the seventh.”It’s like we tell these guys: Don’t assume anything,” Renteria said. ”Just go until they ultimately make the call. We’ll let the opposing team make the review call. It didn’t look very good having him standing at the plate and having the ball go around the diamond.”Anderson said he was surprised by Renteria’s decision to pull him out of the game.”But he’s the manager. It’s his call,” Anderson said. ”I can’t do nothing but respect his decision (and) come tomorrow and be ready to play.”ABOUT THAT DEADLINEThe White Sox acquired minor league left-hander Hunter Schryver from Tampa Bay for $1 million in international signing bonus pool money. Schryver, a seventh-round pick in the 2017 draft out of Villanova University, was assigned to Class A Winston-Salem.The Royals did not make a trade in the final hours before the non-waiver deadline.TRAINER’S ROOMRoyals: OF Brian Goodwin was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left groin strain. He got hurt running the bases on Saturday night against the Yankees. … INF Cheslor Cuthbert, who is out with a lower back strain, was transferred to the 60-day DL.White Sox: OF Luis Robert, one of Chicago’s top prospects, was slated to begin a rehab assignment with the Arizona League White Sox. Robert had been sidelined by a left thumb injury.UP NEXTJakob Junis (5-11 [url=]Brett Gardner Jersey[/url] , 5.06 ERA) and Dylan Covey (4-6, 5.40 ERA) pitch Wednesday night in a matchup of struggling right-handers. Junis is 0-8 with a 6.98 ERA in his last nine starts for Kansas City. Covey has one win and an 8.73 ERA over his last seven starts.—Jay Cohen can be reached at — ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Ramon Laureano grabbed the spotlight, and that was just fine with Edwin Jackson.Laureano made an outstanding defensive play in the third inning, helping Jackson and the Oakland Athletics beat the Los Angeles Angels 7-0 on Saturday night.With one out and Eric Young Jr. on first, Laureano raced into the gap in left-center to haul in Justin Upton’s drive. The rookie center fielder then completed the double play by uncorking a long throw to first .“He’s a game-changer,” Jackson said. “I’ve seen him make a play similar to that in Triple-A when I was in Nashville. I knew he had it in him but man, plays like that, if those don’t get you fired up then I don’t know what does.“First of all [url=][/url ] , to make the catch. And after that the throw. That’s what he’s capable of doing. He’s a playmaker for sure. I’m sure you’ll see much more of it.”Marcus Semien homered twice and Khris Davis also connected as Oakland won for the eighth time in 10 games. The A’s also stayed 1 1/2 games ahead of Seattle for the second AL wild card.Jackson (4-2) allowed three hits and walked three in 7 1/3 innings. Ryan Buchter got two outs and Emilio Pagan finished the five-hitter.But it was Laureano’s play that caught everyone’s attention.“That’s probably one of the more impressive things I’ve seen in baseball,” Oakland left fielder Chad Pinder said.“He knew exactly what he was doing. He put it right on the money.”Semien had three hits, scored three times and drove in four runs. He hit a three-run shot in the second and a solo drive in the fourth.Davis hit his 34th homer in the third, a solo drive to right that made it 5-0. Davis has 13 homers in his 20 games since the All-Star break.Los Angeles had won four in a row. Tyler Skaggs (8-8) was tagged for seven runs and 10 hits in 3 1/3 innings in his first start since coming off the disabled list after being sidelined by a left adductor strain.“I don’t know if he felt that great,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “He missed some time with the groin injury. It didn’t look like it was very crisp. On a night where obviously we needed some innings out of him, unfortunately he couldn’t get to a certain point of the game. He battled hard. He missed some spots, wasn’t very crisp and those guys hit the ball well.”A’s third baseman Matt Chapman hit a run-scoring single in the first inning to reach base safely in a career-high 25th consecutive game.THAT’S A LOT OF HOME RUNSSemien’s second homer of the night was No. 8,000 for the franchise since it moved to Oakland in 1968. The Athletics got the ball and will display it at home.LONG TIME COMINGAngels catcher Francisco Arcia, who made his major league debut last month after 12 years in the minor leagues [url=]Brian Roberts Jersey[/url] , pitched a scoreless ninth inning, allowing one hit. He became the first position player to pitch for the Angels since Chili Davis on June 17, 1993. Arcia said he threw bullpen fastballs.“It was just fun,” Arcia said. “I got in the back of my mind when I was pitching in Little League.”TRAINER’S ROOMAngels: RHP Shohei Ohtani (strained right elbow) threw a light bullpen session.UP NEXTAthletics: RHP Trevor Cahill (4-2, 3.12 ERA) starts Sunday. He is 3-0 with a 3.76 ERA since coming off the disabled list on July 12.Angels: RHP Taylor Cole (0-2, 1.59 ERA) will open for Los Angeles, but Scioscia said it will be a bullpen game.
