The Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White Sox 9-4 on Saturday night, using a four-run eighth inning to hold off a late comeback attempt by the visiting team.
Bruce Chen would allow just two runs in six innings against the White Sox, notching five strikouts while walking just one batter on the night.
Chen would be pulled after allowing two runs in the sixth with the Royals leading 5-0, and the White Sox would pull to within 5-4 in the top of the eighth with Tim Collins on the mound.
The Royals would instantly respond, with Mike Moustakas hitting a three-run home run against Brett Myers and giving Kansas City a commanding 9-4 lead.
Billy Butler would have the other big night for the home team, going 3-for-4 with three RBIs.
