Jose Lopez had three RBIs and Jason Kipnis drove in two runs to help the Cleveland Indians beat the Kansas City Royals 8-5 Monday.

Josh Tomlin (2-2) gave up four runs and four hits in five innings as Cleveland broke a three-game losing streak. The right-hander had not pitched since May 7 due to right wrist tendinitis.

Kipnis had a two-run single in a five-run third inning off Nathan Adcock (0-3) as the first-place Indians maintained a half-game lead in the AL Central over the Chicago White Sox. They had lost three in a row at Chicago over the weekend.

Chris Perez got a standing ovation as he worked a perfect ninth
for his 17th save. His only blown save came on opening day.
