Indians Win Three in a Row Beat the Royals 14-6

For the third game of the series, Cal Quantrill was on the hill for the Tribe. This is the 26-year old’s eighth start of the season. Quantrill was primarily a reliever until injuries riddled the starting rotation. He’s since then moved into a starting role. His last outing, on July 4th,  was against Houston. He he did not factor in the decision while going 5.1 innings and allowing three runs.

Quantrill pitched 6 innings on Saturday allowing five hits, three runs and one strikeout. He threw 90 pitches which gave the Indians coveted pitching length.
