Indians 15, Royals 4: Tribe drubs KC in series opener

The offensively-challenged Indians found their groove Friday night at Progressive Field, routing the Royals 15-4 behind a 17-hit attack.

It was Cleveland’s second straight win, but just its sixth in the last 20 games.

The Indians scored six times in the second inning, then added a five-run outburst in the eighth.
