Alex Gordon and Eric Hosmer each added two-run home runs in the fourth to lead the Kansas City Royals to a 6-2 victory Thursday night.
The blasts led to a four-run fourth, and Hosmer’s homer was his first since September 11, 2012. Mike Moustakas added a solo home run in seventh and Salvador Perez singled in another in the eighth.
The Royals have now won the last 18 starts by Jeremy Guthrie, extending his club record and improving him to 5-0.
Kansas City comes home to face the New York Yankees with Wade Davis facing Phil Hughes at 7:10 PM.
