Pitching matchups: The White Sox' Chris Sale (12-3) vs. Luis Mendoza (5-7) Monday; Jake Peavy (9-7) vs. Bruce Chen (7-9) Tuesday; Jose Quintana (4-1) vs. Jeremy Guthrie (0-2) Wednesday. All games 7:10 p.m.

At a glance: The White Sox continue their nine-game homestand with three against the Royals. They are 3-3 vs. Kansas City this season (1-2 at the Cell). The Sox have won 12 of their last 14 home games. Sale makes his first start since July 27, when he won at Texas after allowing 5 runs on 6 hits in 6 innings. Sale's velocity was way down against the Rangers, which led to an extended break. The left-hander is 4-0 with a 0.69 ERA in his last 5 starts at the Cell. A.J. Pierzynski, who has homered in five straight games, is a lifetime 4-for-12 with 1 home run and 5 RBI vs. Mendoza. Kevin Youkilis is hitting .425 (17-for-40) with 5 home runs, 15 RBI and 14 runs scored in 12 home games since coming over from Boston in a June 24 trade. Addison Reed is 7-for-7 in save opportunities at the Cell.
