KANSAS CITY (AP) - Mike Aviles hit a three-run homer and finished with a career-high five RBIs, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Kansas City Royals 10-3 on Sunday night to split the first day-night doubleheader in Kauffman Stadium history.

The Royals' Jeremy Guthrie shut down Cleveland in a 9-0 victory in the opener, but Will Smith (0-1) couldn't do the same after getting recalled from Triple-A Omaha for the night-cap.

The Indians scored twice off Smith in the second inning. Aviles hit his homer in the third, and then he added sacrifice flies in the fourth and seventh innings against his former team.

Corey Kluber yielded only Chris Getz's two-run blooper in the fourth in a stellar spot start for Cleveland. Kluber (2-0) lasted seven innings and retired his final 10 batters.
