CHICAGO (AP) -- Bruce Chen allowed two hits in eight innings and the Kansas Royals backed him with four home runs Friday night in an 11-1 romp over the Chicago White Sox.

Eric Hosmer, Salvador Perez, Alcides Escobar and Jeff Francoeur connected for the Royals. Kansas City has won nine of 11 overall in a late-season surge.

Chen (12-8) finished 3-1 this season against the White Sox, with all three of the wins at U.S. Cellular Field. His lone loss to Chicago came last Sunday in Kansas City, when he gave up nine hits and four runs in 5 1-3 innings.
