It was bound to happen sooner or later. The Kansas City Royals have won a baseball game. The first time they’ve done that since April 10th. The Indians started them on their losing streak by beating them in their home opener 8-3. 12 games later the Royals are back in the win column. They got off to a quick start on Cleveland starter Ubaldo Jimenez when Billy Butler hit a 2-run opposite field homer in the 1st inning. Jimenez would end up going 6 innings giving up 4 runs on 6 hits, walked 3 and struckout 2. The other 2 runs Jimenez gave up were courtesy of a Eric Hosmer 2-run opposite field home run in the 5th inning to put KC up 4-0. Indians chipped away scoring a run in the 6th and 7th innings. Asdrubal Cabrera lined out to left with runners on 2nd and 3rd to end the 7th. Jairo Asencio imploded in the 9th giving up a 3-run jack to Alex Gordon and Billy Butler’s 2nd homer of the game. Rubber game of the series is tomorrow at noon. Tomlin vs.
