Royals look to regain first place

The Kansas City Royals have reclaimed first place in the American League Central, although they did so without winning on Sunday.

The Royals were trailing Cleveland 4-2 in the bottom of the 10th when play was suspended by rain. Indians third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall snapped a 2-2 tie with a two-run double, one inning after Royals outfielder Alex Gordon extended the game with a solo homer.

The game will resume on Sept. 22 in Cleveland before the start of a three-game series.

The outcome puts the Royals a half-game ahead of Detroit and keeps the Indians 3 ½ games off the pace.

The Tigers lost their share of first place by committing a season-high four errors in a 6-2 loss to the White Sox in Chicago. Detroit starter Rick Porcello was thwarted in his bid to become the season's third 16-game winner, allowing six runs - three earned - over 6 2/3 innings. He was outpitched by Jose Quintana, who gave up two runs in seven innings
