The Cleveland Indians host the Kansas City Royals in AL Central MLB action on Sunday.
The Kansas City Royals hope to get back in the win column following a 6-2 loss at Cleveland on Saturday. Kansas City starter Jakob Junis was charged with four runs on six hits and a pair of BB over 5.2 frames while Kevin McCarthy gave two runs (one earned) in an inning.

The Royals logged eight hits with Jorge Soler going 3-4 with a pair of doubles and an RBI followed by Salvador Perez with another RBI while Jon Jay went 3-4 and scored both runs.
Danny Duffy is gunning for back to back victories when he face the Orioles on Sunday. Duffy comes off of a 15-7 win at Baltimore with a run scoring on six hits and a pair of BB in 5.1 frames.
The Cleveland Indians are hoping a long awaited hot streak is underway after Saturday’s victory versus Kansas City. Cleveland starter Mike Clevinger allowed both runs on eight hits over 7.2 frames to up his record to 3-0.
The Indians banged out nine hits and walked three times with Francisco Lindor gong 4-4 with a pair of long balls with four runs and four RBI’s while Michael Brantley had three hits with two runs and two runs knocked in.
Corey Kluber looks for his 6th in when Kansas City takes the field on Sunday afternoon. Kluber suffered his second defeat last time out in a 3-2 loss at Milwaukee with all three runs plated on five hits including two homers over six innings.
Over is 6-2 in Kansas City last 8 road games and are 4-10 in their last 14 road games. Over is 12-1 in Cleveland last 13 home games and over is 12-3-1 in Cleveland last 16 overall and over is 12-3-1 in Cleveland last 16 on grass.
I am not saying Cleveland is a sure thing although the odds do. Kluber didn’t look good against Milwaukee and I’m hoping he bounces back…
