KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Eric Hosmer had three hits and doubled in the winning run in the ninth inning to lift Kansas City to a 7-6 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night that extended the Royals' winning streak to six games.

Hosmer's liner over the head of left fielder Juan Pierre scored Alex Gordon, who led off the inning with a single. After Miguel Cabrera's sacrifice bunt moved Gordon to second, Billy Butler was walked intentionally.

It was the Royals' 12th walk-off victory this season.

Greg Holland (5-1) worked the ninth to pick up the victory. Matt Thornton (1-5) took the loss.

Mike Moustakas and Jeff Francoeur each had three hits and drove in two runs for the Royals.
