CLEVELAND– After a 75-minute rain delay, the Cleveland Indians put on a show for Tribe fans who braved the bad weather.
The Indians topped the Kansas City Royals 6-2 thanks to strong offensive games from Francisco Lindor and Michael Brantley, and the work Mike Clevinger put in on the mound.
The game was a big one for Lindor in particular, who currently has five errors in the month of May (including a costly one in Friday’s 10-9 loss to Kansas City). He went 4-for-4 with two doubles and two home runs, leading the Tribe at the plate.
“Came back with a vengeance,” manager Terry Francona said after the game. “I mean he’s had a couple of tough games, there’s no getting around that and that’s baseball. Players do that. But boy, he sure is talented.”
And with that, let’s get into our three takeaways, starting with the man of the hour.
