KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Pinch-runners Jarrod Dyson and Terrance Gore scored in the ninth inning as the Kansas City Royals rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox last night. Wade Davis worked a scoreless ninth to pick up the victory. White Sox starter John Danks pitched six scoreless innings and allowed just two singles.

CHICAGO (AP) - Anthony Rizzo capped his return to the Cubs lineup with a walk-off home run in the ninth inning that gave Chicago a 1-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds last night. Rizzo had missed the last 18 games due to a back problem but drove a pitch from Pedro Villarreal over the wall in center field. Rizzo's homer was his 31st of the season.

CHICAGO (AP) - Anthony Rizzo and Jorge Soler were back in the Chicago Cubs' starting lineup against the Cincinnati Reds last night. Rizzo was sidelined for 18 games because of a lower back strain. Soler missed three games to attend to the birth of his child in Miami.

CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Bears say cornerback Charles Tillman will miss the remainder of the season after tearing his right triceps. The Bears placed the two-time Pro Bowl player on injured reserve yesterday. Tillman came up clutching his arm in pain in the third quarter of Sunday's win at San Francisco after he got tangled with the 49ers' Michael Crabtree on a run along the sideline by Colin Kaepernick (KAP'-ur-nihk).
