Sitting 8.5 games back of the surprising Minnesota Twins in the AL Central, the Cleveland Indians have some work to do in order to get back into the race that many predicted them winning easily before the season. The first obstacle in their path? The Kansas City Royals, who are cemented at the bottom of the division.
It’s a rather unceremonious lineup for KC, but it does boast two potential All-Stars in Whit Merrifield and Hunter Dozier, the latter of whom is in the running for a starting spot at third base. On the mound for the Royals is Jakob Junis, currently in the middle of the worst season of his three-year career.
Tyler Naquin hit a two-run homer and Santana, Roberto Perez and Mike Freeman had solo shots for the Indians, who were three outs away from their fifth straight win before Hand imploded.
After the Royals tied it 3-3 in the sixth on Lucas Duda’s RBI double, Jason Kipnis walked to open the Indians’ sixth. Royals starter Glenn Sparkman retired the next two hitters, but Naquin made him pay for hanging a curveball with his fifth homer.
