Game XLVIII: Royals at Indians

A series win, mayhaps?

Note: Great news for the out-of-towners like myself: today’s game is on Fox Sports 1 and the MLB.tv Free Game of the Day.

Pop quiz? When was the last time this team was in anything but last place in the AL Central? Depressing answer: After beating the Giants on April 19th, the team got back to .500 at 7-7 and jump from 5th to 2nd in 1 night. The next day, they lost 1-0 in 13 innings and fell to 4th. And on April 21, the first loss of that disastrous Rangers...
