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.

DEAL, N.J. (AP) - Two-time defending champion Ellen Port advanced to the second round of the U.S. Senior Women's Amateur on Monday, beating Kimberly Briele 6 and 4. The St. Louis woman was the qualifying medalist at Hollywood Golf Club. She has a record four U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur titles and captained the winning U.S. Curtis Cup team in June.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Running backs Russell Hansbrough and Marcus Murphy are expected to play when No. 18 Missouri hosts Indiana on Saturday. Coach Gary Pinkel says Hansbrough left the Tigers' 38-10 win against Central Florida on Saturday on the first play in the fourth quarter after feeling "dizzy." Murphy didn't play the final five minutes due to a mild ankle strain.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The status of Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and safety Eric Berry is in question for Sunday's game in Miami. Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles has a high ankle sprain. Safety Eric Berry also has an ankle sprain. The loss of Charles and Berry means the Chiefs are down seven starters to injuries and suspensions.
