After taking two of three from the Cardinals in St. Louis, the Cleveland Indians will travel to the western side of the Show-Me State to take on the Royals.
Despite dropping the final game of their three-game series with the Cardinals, the Cleveland Indians will travel to Kanas City to take on the Royals tied for first place in the AL Central.
Cleveland took two out of three games from the Cardinals this past weekend while the Detroit Tigers swept the Twins. Thus, the Indians find themselves in a first-place tie with the Chicago White Sox, who took two out of three games from Kansas City over the weekend.
The Indians’ trip to Kansas City will be their first and only of the shortened 2020 season. Cleveland is 2-1 against the Royals so far this season as they took two out of three from them to open the season.
Kansas City enters the series 13-21 on the season as they continue to rebuild after going all-in to win the World Series in 2015 and being unable to resign their championship core as all-stars Eric Hosmer, Lorenzo Cain and Johnny Cueto all left the club via free agency shortly after their title run.
Can the Indians take care of business and move into sole possession of first place in the central? Here’s a look at lies ahead for the Tribe in Kansas City.
