CHICAGO — When the Chicago White Sox scheduled Greek Heritage Night for Tuesday, they probably didn’t consider that Mike Moustakas would be in the visiting dugout.
Moustakas put a capper on the festivities by homering twice to help the Kansas City Royals snap a four-game losing streak with a 7-1 rout.
Moustakas, who has 12 homers this season, went 3 for 5 with three RBIs. He raised his batting average to .198. The Royals entered the game with a major league-worst 55 homers and had managed a total of six runs during the losing streak.
Bruce Chen (2-2) allowed one run and five hits in five innings to get the win. Chen has 82 career victories to tie former New York Yankees great Mariano Rivera for the most wins by a Panamanian.
Adam Dunn went 2 for 4 with a solo homer for the White Sox, who had won three of four. Chicago starter Scott Carroll (4-6) allowed five runs and 11 hits in five-plus innings.
