Hosmer's HR sends Royals to 6-5 win over Indians

Posted: Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Eric Hosmer hit a go-ahead homer in the seventh inning, and the Kansas City Royals rallied after losing outfielder Alex Gordon to a head injury to beat the Cleveland Indians 6-5 on a wild Wednesday night at Kauffman Stadium.

Hosmer connected with two outs off Indians reliever Cody Allen (3-1), one inning after Gordon collided with the bullpen fence while tracking a fly ball. The Gold Glove outfielder remained down on the warning track for several minutes before slowly standing up and walking off the field.

Will Smith (1-1) pitched 1 2-3 innings of scoreless relief for the Royals, and Greg Holland managed the ninth to help Kansas City snap a 3-game skid against the Indians.

Holland worked around an error by shortstop Alicdes Escobar for his 18th save.
