Chris Carter drove in four runs with two homers as the Houston Astros completed a three-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals with a 9-3 victory on Wednesday.

George Springer, who also homered, and Dexter Fowler both had two RBI and Carlos Corporan went 3-for-4 for the Astros, who won their fifth consecutive game and swept the Royals for the first time since July 6-8, 2001.

Jarred Cosart (4-4) earned the win after surrendering two runs -- one earned -- on four hits with a strikeout across five innings.

Brett Hayes went 2-for-4 with a home run while Omar Infante and Alcides Escobar both drove in a run for Kansas City, which has lost four straight and five of its last six.

Danny Duffy (2-5) was tagged with the loss after giving up seven hits, six runs -- five earned -- and five walks in four-plus frames.
