Tribe rains down runs in Kansas City for 10-1 win; Three Takeaways

3. Dominant offense in the race for the division

The Indians bats as a whole tonight were firing on all cylinders.

Cleveland recorded 13 hits in 40 at-bats (.325) as a team. Their four homers as a team accounted for seven of their 10 runs.

It will be great news for the Tribe if they can keep their bats swinging and build some momentum in an important divisional match-up, especially considering the fact that the team is still without Michael Brantley and Lonnie Chisenhall.

Heading into Friday night, Kansas City had a half game lead on the Twins for second place in the AL Central, and the Indians sat atop the division with a five and a half game lead.

While the Twins won tonight, pushing them into second place ahead of the Royals, the Indians now sit six games ahead of Minnesota and six and a half games ahead of Kansas City.

This series gives the Tribe a good chance to separate themselves from Kansas City even further, a chance they will get again next weekend when the Royals make their way to Progressive Field for another three-game set.
