KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Mike Moustakas hit a three-run shot and the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White Sox 9-4 on Saturday night, overcoming Adam Dunn’s 400th career homer.
Moustakas connected in the eighth and drove in four runs for the Royals, who have won four of five. Alcides Escobar had four infield singles, scored three runs and had his team-leading 24th steal.
Chicago trailed 5-2 before Dunn drove a 2-2 pitch from Tim Collins over the wall in left-center in the eighth. Kevin Youkilis, who singled with one out for his 1,000th career hit, was aboard for Dunn’s major league-best 35th homer of the season.
Dunn is one of 11 active players with 400 homers and No. 50 to reach the mark overall.
