— Mike Moustakas hit his third home run in four games and Jeff Francoeur hit a three-run homer and the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White Sox, 10-3, Saturday night for their seventh straight victory.

Moustakas, who had three hits, homered in the fifth with Eric Hosmer, who had doubled, aboard. Moustakas and Salvador Perez singled in the fourth, and both scored on Alcides Esocbar’s triple.

Francoeur hit his 19th home run in the eighth with Melky Cabrera and Hosmer on base.

Perez and Cabrera each contributed three singles to the Royals’ 18-hit attack. Alcides Escobar doubled and tripled and drove in two runs.
