Kelvin Herrera (1-1) gave up the home runs in a span of three pitches.

Second baseman Whit Merrifield started the fifth inning with a single to center field and third baseman Mike Moustakas followed with a single to right field.

Royals left-hander Jason Vargas allowed four singles over six-plus scoreless innings in a no-decision. He struck out five and walked four over 5 2/3 innings.

Opponents are hitting.181 off him at Kauffman Stadium. Jason Kipnis' two-out RBI single tied it in the eighth before Carlos Santana and Francisco Lindor belted back-to-back solo homers with two outs in the ninth inning to give the Indians a 3-1 victory Saturday. "They were in the zone".

In a matchup of two questionable pitchers, I have to go with the better batting lineup.

After equaling last season's loss total in less than a month, the reigning AL Cy Young Award victor finally got to pitch with a lead again when Boston took advantage of a costly Minnesota error and scored eight two-out runs in the second.

In the bottom of the sixth inning, right fielder Jorge Bonifacio smacked a 1-1 pitch into left field for a single, and after former Indians outfielder/designated hitter Brandon Moss struck out swinging, shortstop Alcides Escobar doubled to left field.

"It's definitely tough", Cain said.

Cleveland is the defending American League champion from a season ago and we all know they're just itching to get back to the World Series again in 2017 and have "the right ending" this time. He allowed four runs and eight hits Sunday in a 12-4 win over Seattle. "You've got to put up runs to win ball games and we definitely haven't been doing it".

Rookie Matt Strahm replaced Vargas and struck out Brandon Guyer with a 95 miles per hour fastball. Soler, who was injured in spring training, hit.308 with a.538 slugging percentage in 11 rehab games with Triple-A Omaha. X-rays were negative, revealing a bruise. RHP Miguel Almonte was recalled from Double-A Northwest Arkansas, where he was 1-0 with a 1.85 ERA and 29 strikeouts in 24 1/3 innings. Mike Clevinger will get the start, making his season debut for the Indians. The 26-year-old, who made 17 appearances (10 starts) with the Indians as a rookie last year, is 3-1 with a 1.50 ERA in six starts with Columbus.
