KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Justin Masterson remained unbeaten in four decisions and the Cleveland Indians, after being stymied for five innings by Luke Hochevar, rallied to beat Kansas City 7-5 on Wednesday night.

Hochevar (2-2) retired the first 15 batters, allowing only three balls to be hit hard, and ran his string of retired batters over two starts to 31 straight. But he lost his no-hitter, his shutout, his composure and his lead in a messy sixth that saw the Indians send nine men to the plate.

Masterson (4-0) settled down after allowing two runs in the first inning. The right-hander, who was 6-13 a year ago, allowed six hits and five walks and struck out three in six innings.
