KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Mark DeRosa had three hits and drove in
the tiebreaking run in the eighth, Kerry Wood atoned for his horrid
outing the night before and Cleveland held on for a 6-5 comeback
victory over Kansas City on Wednesday night.
Wood, rocked for four runs in the ninth inning Tuesday in a
disheartening 6-5 loss to the Royals, walked the bases full with
one out in the ninth. But he struck out Mark Teahen and David
DeJesus for his sixth save in eight opportunities -- his first since
May 1.
DeRosa's RBI double off Sidney Ponson (1-5) scored pinch-runner
Matt LaPorta in the eighth, and Ben Francisco followed with an RBI
single for a 6-4 lead.
Victor Martinez was 2 for 5 and kept his major league-leading
average at .400 for the Indians, who snapped a four-game losing
streak.
