Bruce Chen went seven innings in another workmanlike start, Jeff Francoeur and Yuniesky Betancourt both went deep and the Kansas City Royals beat the Tampa Bay Rays 8-2 on Tuesday night.

Betancourt hit a two-run shot during a four-run third inning against Chris Archer (0-2), and Francoeur added a three-run homer
during a four-run eighth to give Kansas City some breathing room.

Alex Gordon and Billy Butler also drove in runs to pace a Royals
offense that was outscored by St. Louis 30-14 over the weekend, but
has trumped Tampa Bay 16-2 so far this series.

The Royals will go for the sweep on Wednesday afternoon.

Chen (7-6) gave up a run in the first and Brooks Conrad's solo
shot in the second to win for the seventh time in his last nine
decisions.
