Sept. 18, 2013 at 12:32 AM

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 18 (UPI) -- Michael Bourn drove in two runs Tuesday and the Cleveland Indians rallied to upend the Kansas City Royals 5-3.

The win kept Cleveland a half-game behind Texas and Tampa Bay in the American League wild-card race.

Kansas City led 3-0 after five innings, but the Tribe scored at least one run in the final four innings to steal the victory.

Bourn went 2-for-4 and walked once. His solo home run in the ninth accounted for Cleveland's fifth run.

Cody Allen (6-1) picked up the win with just 2/3 of an inning of work. Chris Perez struck out two Royals in the ninth and was credited with his 25th save.

Wade Davis (7-11) took the loss in relief for Kansas City. Mike Moustakis doubled twice and drove in a run.

Hard-throwing Royals rookie Yordano Ventura made his first Major League start. He allowed one run on five hits, two walks and struck out three in 5 2/3 innings.
