KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Amed Rosario became the first player on record to go 5 for 5 with five RBIs, an inside-the-park homer, and a drive over the fence, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Kansas City Royals 7-2.

Rosario had the first five-RBI game of his career and matched a career-high in hits.

He’s the first player since at least 1920, when RBIs became an official stat, to go 5 for 5 with five RBIs and both types of homer in the same game, according to STATS.

Zach Plesac pitched a two-hit ball over seven scoreless innings, striking out seven without a walk allowed.
