CLEVELAND – The Indians wrapped up a short three-game weekend homestand with the Royals Sunday, and celebrated Mother’s Day with an 11-2 whipping behind three homers as well as the solid pitching of ace Corey Kluber.
The win puts the Tribe back over .500 at 20-19 on the season, with the Royals playing much like a team looking to the future at 13-27.
It’s on the road now for the next 11 days for the Indians, as they will head to Detroit for three, an off day on Thursday, and then a three-game set against the World Series Champion Astros before two with the White Sox before coming home.
Here’s three takeaways from the victory Sunday at Progressive Field.
