Royals 3, Indians 2

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Salvador Perez hit a two-run homer with two outs in the eighth inning, and the Royals held on through a shaky ninth. Joakim Soria pitched a scoreless eighth inning, then got Jason Kipnis to pop out with runners on first and second in the ninth to end it. Whit Merrifield also homered for the Royals, winners of four straight and one game back of the AL Central-leading Indians. The Indians took their first lead of the series when Carlos Santana homered in the third. It was also the AL-leading 18th that Chris Young had allowed.
