Josh Naylor homers as Indians edge Royals 5-4

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Josh Naylor homered in the ninth inning, sending the Cleveland Indians to a 5-4 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night.

Naylor greeted Wade Davis (0-1) with a leadoff drive to right for his second homer. Nick Wittgren (2-1) struck out the side in the eighth for the win, and James Karinchak worked the ninth for his third save.

"I was trying to be patient for something over the heart of the plate," Naylor said. "I knew I could set the tone for the inning, whether it was a hit or a walk. Thankfully I was able to put one out."
