Box Score: Indians 15, Royals 3

Offense! There was plenty of it today as the Indians took out some frustration on perhaps their favorite pitcher to tee off on in the AL, Luke Hochevar. Ten different Indians collected a hit as the Tribe bounced the Royals 15-3. Asdrubal Cabrera, Lou Marson, and Jack Hannahan each had three hits, and Cabrera drove in four with his grand slam in the 5th inning. Zach McAllister went 6 2/3 innings and allowed just three runs to collect his sixth win of the season. The Indians took two of three against the Royals, and they will finish the year with a three-game series at Progressive Field against the Chicago White Sox starting tomorrow night.
