CLEVELAND (AP) – Francisco Lindor, making a late run for AL Rookie of the Year, was 3 for 4 with a home run and four RBIs to lead the Indians to a 5-1 win over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night.

Danny Salazar (13-8) took a three-hit shutout into the seventh before Mike Moustakas started the inning with a home run. The right-hander allowed one run and struck out six in seven innings.

Lindor, who has now topped 100 hits since being called up from the minors on June 14, began the fifth with an outstanding play at shortstop. He dove to his left to come up with Alex Rios’ ground ball and made a one-hop throw to first from his knees for the out.

Danny Duffy (7-8) allowed four runs in 2 1/3 innings for Kansas City, which has dropped nine of 12.
