Happy Friday, everyone!
Indians 5, Royals 4
It may have took just under five hours to complete, but the Tribe pulled out their first extra innings road win of the season to stay 2.0 games behind the Minnesota Twins.
Naquin was finally healthy and finally hot the plate, so hopefully this hamstring issues is just a minor thing that needs a day off. Francona is hoping he can be back in the lineup tonight, which is extra important after a 14-inning marathon last night.
The tl;dr version is Naquin see above, Otero still needs time, Zimmer had another setback, Salazar is going to pitch again on Saturday, and Kluber is going to toss another bullpen session.
Third trip to the bigs may be the charm for Mr. Allen.
