Hendriks hit hard, pulled early as Royals lose 7-5

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Liam Hendriks' abbreviated start forced Royals relievers to work six innings, and that didn't work out very well.

Kelvin Herrera and Wade Davis both gave up runs for the first time in nearly three months as Kansas City's dominant bullpen was touched up Tuesday night in a 7-5 loss to the Chicago White Sox.

Royals manager Ned Yost went to his bullpen early when Hendriks was pulled after three-plus innings. He gave up four runs on seven hits and a walk.
