Moustakas hit a drive off Cubs starter Edwin Jackson to lead off the second inning. He hit a two-run shot off Carlos Villanueva in the third.

Hosmer doubled twice, and all of his hits went to the opposite field. Lorenzo Cain had two hits for the Royals.

Kansas City starter Wade Davis gave up one hit in two scoreless innings.
