Indians Rally To Get Past Royals

Associated Press - September 17, 2013 10:39 pm

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Asdrubal Cabrera drove in the go ahead run in the eighth inning, and the Cleveland Indians rallied against the stingy Kansas City Royals bullpen for a 5-3 victory Tuesday night.

The Indians were shut out until the sixth by Yordano Ventura, who made an electric major league debut. They tied the game at 3 in the seventh off reliever Kelvin Herrera, and Cabrera’s double off Wade Davis (7-11) in the eighth scored Drew Stubbs and gave Cleveland the lead.

Michael Bourn added a homer in the ninth to provide a cushion.

Meanwhile, Cody Allen (6-1) was among six Indians relievers who kept Kansas City off the scoreboard the final 4 1/3 innings. Chris Perez handled a perfect ninth for his 25th save.

The win allowed the Indians to remain a half game back of Texas and Tampa Bay in the AL wild card race. The Royals are 3 1/2 games back after the Rangers beat the Rays.
