SHARE Wise stays in lineup vs. Royals

Dewayne Wise is staying in Robin Ventura’s lineup for the White Sox game against the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night.

A day after collecting three hits including a two-run tying single in the Sox’ 5-4 victory against the Detroit Tigers at U.S. Cellular Field, Wise was penciled into the eighth spot and will play center field. Alejandro De Aza returns to the lineup in left field and will lead off against right-hander Luke Hochevar. The right-handed hitting Dayan Viciedo, who is 0-for-4 with two strikeouts against Hochevar, goes to the bench.

Paul Konerko, after being the designated hitter the last three games, will play first base. For the purpose of staying loose and being active for the benefit of his strained oblique, Adam Dunn has played first since coming off the shelf.

The Sox go into the game with a three-game lead on the Tigers in the American League Central. The Tigers host the Oakland A’s on Tuesday night.

Right-hander Gavin Floyd starts for the Sox, who own a four-game winning streak. The Sox lineup vs. Hochevar:
