ANAHEIM (AP) – Jeff Francis survived a shaky sixth inning to get his first road victory of the season, left fielder Alex Gordon threw out a runner at home plate and the Kansas City Royals beat the Los Angeles Angels 4-2 Friday night.

Melky Cabrera and Billy Butler each hit solo homers for the Royals.

Former first-round draft pick Mike Moustakas, who played at Chatsworth High School went 1 for 3 in his big league debut.

Francis (3-6) pitched 6 1-3 innings in his third start against the Angels this season, allowing two runs and eight hits after being staked to a 4-0 lead.

The left-hander, who struck out three and walked one, hadn’t won a road game since beating Florida on July 20, 2010, while pitching for Colorado.
