Mendoza helps Royals beat Indians 6-3

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Luis Mendoza pitched into the seventh inning in his first start since a bout with strep throat and the Kansas City Royals beat the struggling Cleveland Indians 6-3 on Friday night.

Mike Moustakas and Brayan Pena each drove in two runs for the Royals, who have won three straight and 4 of 6. Mendoza wiggled out of a bases-loaded jam in the first and allowed two runs and eight hits in six-plus innings.

The Indians have lost 40 of 52 games since July 26 when they were 50-49 and trailed AL Central-leading Chicago White Sox by 3½ games. They have lost six straight against Kansas City and 8 of 9 overall in the season series.
