Dunn Homers, Peavy and White Sox Beat Royals 5-2
CHICAGO (AP)--Adam Dunn homered and the Chicago White Sox went deep four times to back a solid start by Jake Peavy in a 5-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday.

Tyler Flowers, Dayan Viciedo and Alexi Ramirez also connected, and the White Sox made it two straight wins to start the season after dropping 12 of 18 to Kansas City a year ago.

The Royals, full of optimism after posting the majors' best record in spring training, will try to avoid a season-opening sweep Thursday.

Dunn had two hits and scored twice. He led off the second with his 407th career homer and Flowers opened the third with his second shot.

Peavy (1-0) allowed one earned run and four hits in six innings, striking out six and walking none.
