KANSAS CITY, Mo., April 27 (UPI) -- Eric Hosmer drove in Alex Gordon with a bases-loaded walk Saturday, supplying the winning margin for the Kansas City Royals in a 3-2 decision over Cleveland.

Hosmer's base-on-balls from Scott Kazmir in the seventh inning gave the Royals a 3-0 lead and proved to be the difference as Kansas City took the opener of a four-game series.

Salvador Perez socked a two-run homer and Ervin Santana (3-1) corralled the victory with seven shutout frames, scattering seven hits while striking out five with no walks.

Kazmir (0-1) was touched for two runs on five hits over five full innings.

Michael Brantley delivered a two-run triple in the ninth for the Indians but was stranded at third as Greg Holland picked up his sixth save.
