CLEVELAND (AP) - Chris Gimenez drove in a career-high four runs and the Cleveland Indians hit a trio of three-run homers to beat the Kansas City Royals 15-4 Friday night.

Matt LaPorta hit a three-run homer in Cleveland’s six-run second inning off Bryan Bullington (1-3). Gimenez and Jayson Nix later connected with two on against relievers in the Indians‘ largest offensive output since a 15-3 win over Oakland on July 3, 2009.

Josh Tomlin (2-3) won for the first time in five starts since beating the New York Yankees in his major league debut July 27. The right-hander allowed three runs and eight hits over five innings.

Jason Donald tied a career high with four hits as Cleveland earned its first consecutive wins since taking three in a row July 31 to Aug. 2.
