Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - The Cleveland Indians kept pace in the heated AL wild-card race by rallying for a 5-3 win over the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium.

The Royals looked primed to make up ground in the wild-card standings, keeping the Indians off the board through the first five innings behind the arm of Yordano Ventura, who was making his major league debut.

However, Cleveland scored at least one run in each of the final four innings to erase a 3-0 deficit and sit a half-game behind both the Tampa Bay Rays and Texas Rangers, who are tied for the wild-card spots.
