Royals look for some offense against White Sox

CHICAGO -- Nineteen games into the season is too early for Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost to start fretting too much about his team's lack of offense.

However, as the Royals continues to struggle to score runs and collect hits heading into their Tuesday game against the Chicago White Sox, Yost will rely on pitching and defense until the bats warm up.

"Starting pitchers have done a great job, the bullpen has been doing a really, really nice job," Yost said before Kansas City's 12-1 loss to the White Sox on Monday in which the Royals collected only two hits.
