Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - James Shields threw seven shutout innings and the Kansas City Royals defeated the Chicago White Sox, 5-1, in the opener of a three-game series at U.S. Cellular Field.

Shields (5-7), who bounced back from a loss against Detroit on Sunday, allowed eight hits and a pair of walks.

David Lough had a home run and two RBI. Miguel Tejada, Lorenzo Cain and Mike Moustakas drove in a run for the Royals, who have won four straight and six of their last eight since the All-Star break. They are also just two games shy of .500.

Chicago starter Jose Quintana (5-3) had a solid outing, surrendering two runs on six hits and a walk over seven frames, but the lack of run support tagged him his first loss since May 27 against the Cubs.

Conor Gillaspie's homer in the eighth was the lone score for the White Sox, who have lost four of their last five games.
