KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jose Abreu hit his 13th home run of the season in the first inning, Yasmani Grandal added a two-run shot, and the Chicago White Sox defeated the Kansas City Royals 5-3.

Abreu leads the majors with 40 RBIs in 40 games and extended his hitting streak to 19 games.

His 425-foot, two-run shot pushed him past Baltimore’s Anthony Santander for the longest streak this season.

Alex Colome earned his ninth save in 10 tries. Kris Bubic (0-5) took the loss and Bubba Starling homered.
