White Sox jump on sagging Royals with 8 runs in 1st, win 9-1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Danny Mendick hit a two-run homer during an eight-run first inning for Chicago, and the White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 9-1 on Saturday night.

Yoan Moncada drove in three runs on two hits in the first, and Andrew Vaughn, Leury Garcia and Yasmani Grandal each had an RBI. The White Sox hit for the cycle in the inning and scored their most runs in the opening frame on the road in 21 years.

"If we do what we did tonight we will score a lot of runs and give our pitchers lots of support," Chicago manager Tony La Russa said. "The biggest mistake these days is always trying to hit a home run rather than just hit the barrel. When it warms up, we'll start hitting home runs."
