Box Score: Indians 6, Royals 7 (11 Innings)

A rough debut for Corey Kluber. The first pitch of his major league career was drilled for a home run. The rest of the first inning was pretty either. He settled down and the Indians clawed back into the game, sending it to extra innings. The Royals won it in the 11th. Swept by Twins and Royals in consecutive series. Ugh.

    At least Santana’s found his groove in the last few weeks. That’s something…I guess.

  • Tribe fan 86

    Can it get any worse? I don’t think so

  • Wow

  • FearTheRoo

  • Dee P

    0/19 now Garry

  • clevefan4life

    Nothing to see here. Maybe Chris Perez will finally shut his mouth now.

  • Garry_Owen

    Yeah, yeah, yeah.
    I would note, however, that he produced as much as Hafner did – and at a much lower cost!
