KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Carlos Santana hit two homers and drove in five runs as the Cleveland Indians routed Kansas City 15-4 Sunday in their highest-scoring game of the season.
Santana connected for a two-run shot in the sixth inning off Jake Odorizzi, who lost in his major league debut. Santana added his team-leading 18th homer, a three-run drive during a seven-run ninth.
The loss officially eliminated the Royals from playoff contention and assured them of another losing record. Kansas City has not made the postseason since winning the 1985 World Series, the longest active playoff drought in the majors.
David Huff (2-0) held the Royals to one run on three hits over 5 2-3 innings.
Santana's first homer put the Indians ahead 3-1. Cleveland added five runs in the seventh and pulled away in the ninth.
The Indians spoiled the day for Odorizzi (0-1), one of four players acquired in the 2010 trade for Zack Greinke.
