CLEVELAND -  Even before they picked up a bat to take on the Chicago White Sox Saturday night, the Cleveland Indians' magic number moved up to 2 thanks to Kansas City's win over Detroit Saturday afternoon.

Paulo Orlando hit a tying, two-run double and Eric Hosmer followed with a three-run homer against Francisco Rodriguez, capping a ninth-inning comeback that led the  Royals over the Tigers 7-4.

Detroit's five-game winning streak was stopped, and the Tigers dropped into a tie for the second AL wild card with Baltimore, which played Arizona at night.

As for the Tribe's game tonight, White Sox center fielder Adam Eaton will sit out at least the next two games after crashing into the padded wall Friday night.

Eaton is still undergoing tests. He was shaken up after he raced back and caught a drive by Cleveland's Roberto Perez in the sixth inning of Friday's 5-2 loss. Eaton stayed down for several minutes before he was helped to the dugout.
