Mike Moustakas hit 2 home runs, numbers 33 and 34 but it was not enough for the Kansas City Royals as they suffered their 5th straight loss 6-3 to the Chicago White Sox Friday night.
The White Sox scored 4 runs in the 7th inning to break a 2-2 tie. Manager Ned Yost said the pitchers made to many mistakes in the 7th.
The Royals and White Sox play again tonight with Ian Kennedy on the mound for the Royals and James Shields makes the start for Chicago. First pitch is set for 6:10p.
The Royals are now 5 games back of Cleveland in the AL Central and 1.5 games back of Minnesota in both the AL Central and Wildcard chase.
