Cuthbert, Escobar lead Royals to 7-4 victory over Indians

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) It took the bottom of a makeshift lineup filled with mostly with backups for the Kansas City Royals to finally put some runs on the board against the Cleveland Indians.

Jorge Bonifacio had three hits to start rallies, fill-in third baseman Cheslor Cuthbert homered and drove in three runs, and Alcides Escobar also had three RBIs to help the Royals to a 7-4 victory Sunday and avoid a three-game sweep at the hands of the AL Central leaders.

"We knew we had to get this one," said Bonifacio, who started for Alex Gordon in left field.
