Kansas City at Chicago White Sox, 7:10 p.m., FSN Edinson Volquez (13-9, 3.65) has two wins in his last nine starts for the Royals, though the right-hander has pitched well in many of those outings. Jose Quintana (9-10, 3.38) has had a strong September for Chicago, allowing three earned runs in 27 innings.

L.A. Dodgers at San Francisco, 9 p.m., ESPN The NL West race is all but over, but that doesn't mean a little bad blood won't make for a good game. The Dodgers' Mike Bolsinger (6-5, 3.48) and the Giants' Mike Leake (10-10, 3.89) are each 0-1 against their team's division rival this season.
