CLEVELAND -- Lonnie Chisenhall hit his first career grand slam, Scott Kazmir pitched into the seventh inning and the Cleveland Indians beat the Kansas City Royals 5-3 on Saturday night.

Chisenhall's homer in the sixth broke open a 1-0 game and hit off the facing of the second deck in right field, landing in Kansas City's bullpen.

Kazmir (5-4) allowed two runs in 6 1/3 innings for his first victory since June 21 as the Indians won for the fifth time in seven games.

Miguel Tejada's RBI single in the seventh broke a streak of 22 consecutive scoreless innings for Kansas City, which has lost four in a row.

Alcides Escobar's infield hit with the bases loaded added two runs in the inning.
