While the Indians fell six games behind the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central Division, they are still only a half-game behind the Texas Rangers for the second wild card.
Lonnie Chisenhall provided Cleveland’s only offense with a solo homer in the fifth inning off James Shields (12-9), who struck out 10 in six innings. Overall, Tribe hitters struck out 17 times.
Chisenhall’s home run cut the Royals’ lead to 2-1, but Kansas City pulled ahead by scoring three times in the sixth off Tribe starter Scott Kazmir (8-9) and reliever Matt Albers.
The series will continue tonight at Kaufmann Stadium at 8:10 p.m. Corey Kluber (9-5) will pitch for the Tribe.
