Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - Eric Hosmer walked with the bases loaded in the seventh to force in the eventual game-winning run, as the Kansas City Royals held off the Cleveland Indians, 3-2.

Salvador Perez hit a two-run homer for the Royals, who started a 10-game homestand on Saturday.

Kansas City starter Ervin Santana (3-1) tossed seven scoreless innings to pick up the win. The right-hander gave up six hits while striking out five.

Scott Kazmir (0-1) allowed two runs on five hits over five innings for the Indians, who have lost two straight since a three-game winning streak.

This four-game series was slated to get underway on Friday, but rain caused a postponement. The game will be made up on Sunday as part of a split doubleheader.
