Here’s to a great week!
Indians 8, Royals 0
A rainy Sunday in Kansas City couldn’t hold the Tribe back, as the good guys jumped on the Royals early and never looked back. With the win, the Indians improved to 29-26 on the season.
Otero earned the win, thanks to 2 1⁄3 innings of scoreless work. From Paul Hoynes:
Otero played a role in Saturday's loss, allowing five runs on four hits in one-third of an inning. Four of the five runs were unearned as the defense made two errors behind him, but it was still nice to follow that performance with Sunday's.
"That's the beauty of baseball," said Otero. "You can bounce back the next day. On a team level we had a tough day Saturday. There's no denying that. I think today we came out with more energy.
"On a personal level, for me it was great to bounce back after a rough one Saturday. You always know that there's next game."
Ho-hum for Trevor.
Salazar might be getting closer to re-joining the rotation, but he’s not there yet.
