Davidson, Moncada lead White Sox over Royals 7-6

CHICAGO (AP) Matt Davidson drove in three runs with his 26th homer and a double, Yoan Moncada hit a two-run drive and the Chicago White Sox overcame a four-run deficit to beat the Kansas City Royals 7-6 on Friday night.

Alcides Escobar lined a solo drive and Eric Hosmer singled for two RBIs in a six-run, third-inning inning for the Royals, who dropped 4 1/2 games behind Minnesota for the second AL wild card with nine games left.

White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson made his major-league leading 27th error, and Moncada couldn't handle a grounder at second, leading to four unearned runs in the third. Still, the White Sox moved past Detroit and out of the AL Central cellar for the first time since before the All-Star break.
