KANSAS CITY, Mo. Bob Gibson Cardinals Jersey . -- Alex Gordon got the big hit and Norichika Aoki and Omar Infante spent all day setting the table. Gordon hit a three-run double in the first inning and Jeremy Guthrie pitched effectively into the sixth inning as the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White Sox 7-5 in their home opener Friday. Aoki and Infante were acquired in the off-season to get on base at the top of the order. They each had three hits, and Aoki worked a walk, too. "Thats why we made those additions, guys who can get on base and put the ball in play," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "Nori and Omar were on base seven times, which was big. That set the table for Gordys big double. It was a good offensive day for us." Guthrie allowed four runs on seven hits, four walks and a hit batter in 5 2-3 innings. "It was just windy," Guthrie said. "It was never really cold. The grip is not perfect in conditions like that, but ... were fortunate enough that were moving around every play, so we stay pretty warm." Lorenzo Cain drove in two runs with a two-out fifth inning single that put Kansas City ahead 7-2. The Royals jumped on White Sox rookie right-hander Erik Johnson for six hits and four runs in the first two innings. Johnson retired only 14 of the 28 batters he faced, yielding seven runs on 10 hits, three walks and a hit batter to take the loss. "The biggest thing is that Ive got to compete better for my team," Johnson said. "We were right there. We put five runs on the board after I put them in a hole. Youve got to give credit to our offence for never giving up." Jose Abreu and Conor Gillaspie hit sacrifice flies against Guthrie, and Adam Eaton hit a two-run single off reliever Kelvin Herrera in the sixth, but both runs were charged to Guthrie. Tyler Flowers, who went 4-for-4 Thursday against Minnesota, had hits in his first three at-bats, but the streak ended in the eighth when Aoki dropped his fly ball to right. "I thought we came up with a couple of big hits," Flowers said. "But Guthrie made some good pitches in situations that could have escalated into bigger innings. We had him on the ropes a couple of times, but missed a couple of hits here or there. We were probably a couple of hits away." The Royals, who had not made a challenge in spring training or in the first two games against the Tigers, asked the umpires to review a call in the seventh when Abreu was called safe at first on a throwing error by third baseman Mike Moustakas that pulled Eric Hosmers foot off the bag. After a two minute, 49 second delay, the call was upheld. "I figured it was a good time to take a shot at it," Yost said. "I thought it would be a 50-50 chance." Greg Holland pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his first save after setting a Royals record with 47 saves last season. Notes: RHP Nate Jones was put on the disabled list by the White Sox with a muscle strain in his left hip. RHP Jake Petricka was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte. Jones had allowed four runs without retiring a batter in his first two appearances. Petricka pitched 2 1-3 scoreless innings after Johnson was pulled in the fifth. . LHP Bruce Chen, who is 7-2 against the White Sox since the start of the 2011 season, starts Saturday. LHP John Danks will make his first White Sox start. Red Schoendienst Jersey . -- The Vancouver Whitecaps remained unbeaten with a scoreless draw at the New England Revolution on Saturday. Jedd Gyorko Cardinals Jersey . -- Canadian ski cross star Marielle Thompson accomplished two goals in one race Saturday. http://www.officialthecardinals.com/authentic-tim-mccarver-cardinals-jersey/ .com) - Joique Bells touchdown run in the fourth quarter gave the Detroit Lions a 20-14 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The Florida Gators are back where their last three seasons have ended with yet another chance to go to the Final Four. Being in the Elite Eight again, though, simply isnt enough. Michael Frazier II hit five 3-pointers and finished with 19 points as the Gators beat UCLA 79-68 Thursday night to reach its fourth consecutive NCAA regional final. "We just talked about it, and its not enough for us," Florida senior Will Yeguete said. "We have two days to get ready for a good team, and were just going to go for it on Saturday." The Gators (35-2) also extended the best winning streak in school history to 29 straight in reaching the South Regional final. "From a team aspect, I think weve done a great job of just staying in the moment and just trying to chase greatness," Frazier said. "When you do that, complacency isnt a factor so I think weve done a great job all year of just staying in the moment and chasing greatness." The tournaments overall top seed will play 11th-seeded Dayton on Saturday night for a trip to the Final Four. Dayton beat Stanford 82-72 earlier Thursday night. "Right now we got to put this game behind us and get focused on Dayton," Florida senior Scottie Wilbekin said. "Theyre a great team. Everybody is at this point in the season, and so we got to be locked in and ready because its going to be a battle." Wilbekin added 13 points for Florida. Casey Prather had 12 points, and Dorian Finney-Smith had 10. Kasey Hill had 10 assists. The Gators have not lost since Dec. 2. The Gators lost to Michigan a year ago in a regional final. "But its a new team that we have, and were playing a new team so its a totally different situation," Wilbekin said. "Were just excited to get this win and move onto the next game. Were totally focused on that. The past has no impact." UCLA (28-9) was back in a regional semifinal for the first time since 2008 under first-year coach Steve Alford. But the Bruins just couldnt match Floridas physical defence or outshoot the Gators. UCLA now is 0-4 against Florida coach Billy Donovan all-time -- all in the NCAA tournament.. Stephen Piscotty Cardinals Jersey. "They played very well," Alford said of the Gators. "They are an outstanding basketball team." Florida shot 50 per cent for the game (29 of 58), including 59.3 per cent in the second half. UCLA finished 42.2 per cent (27 of 64) shooting in only their fifth game scoring under 70 points this season. The Bruins were a cold 1 of 12 beyond the arc in the second half. Jordan Adams led the Bruins with 17 points, Kyle Anderson had 11 and five assists with nine rebounds. Travis Wear added 14. Frazier showed off the Gators shooting skills. He had hit only 3 of 13 beyond the arc through the Gators first two tournament wins but hit five of his first six against UCLA. The Gators led 36-30 at halftime and clicked on a different level in the second half. They hit their first six shots and eight of their first 10. Every time UCLA tried to make a run, Florida answered. First, it was Frazier hitting consecutive 3-pointers as UCLA pulled within 43-39. When the Bruins pulled within 56-55 on a layup by Norman Powell midway through the half, Finney-Smith hit a jumper for the first of 10 straight points. The Gators had UCLA running up and down the court so much Adams couldnt even hit the rim with a jumper despite having an open look at the basket. Wilbekin finished off the run with a three-point play that had the Gators solidly in control, up 66-55 with 5:34 left. "He hit two big shots down the stretch," Anderson said. "Thats what you expect out of your senior point guard. Hes been here in the Sweet 16 four years. He made big shots. Credit to him." For all the talk of Floridas stingy defence, UCLA opened the game blocking the Gators first two shots. The Bruins only blocked two more shots the rest of the game. The Bruins came in as one of the nations best scoring teams, averaging 81.5 points a game. Florida showed early it could shoot too, hitting 5 of 8 beyond the arc in spurt that turned a 14-11 deficit into a 20-16 lead. Back-to-back 3s from Frazier put the Gators ahead to stay. Every time Anderson got the ball near the UCLA basket, he found himself with at least two Gators trying to smother him.
