Escobar, Moustakas lead Royals past Indians 5-2

On Sunday, the Royals have a chance to sweep three games from the Indians in Cleveland for the first time since June 2003. In that game, Duffy pitched 6 2/3 innings, giving up one run and six hits with two strikeouts and two walks. It doesn't get much better for a rookie in his second month as a big leaguer. "It feels fantastic to get a hit like that", Bonifacio said. "We're going to hit, and we are getting better".

Earlier, the Indians took an early 4-0 lead against Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Ian Kennedy.

Former Indian Brandon Moss delivered the biggest hit in the series opener with a three-run homer - his fifth blast in the last eight contests - and Whit Merrifield registered a pair of singles to extend his hitting streak to 11 games for Kansas City.

"It was a great comeback", said manager Ned Yost. "Bonny's double was key and was a great at-bat".

Moss then hit a line drive into the seats in right field for his ninth home run, cutting the lead to 4-3. Francisco Lindor and Michael Brantley then picked up RBIs on singles, while a third run scored on Carlos Santana's groundout.

"I wouldn't say it's frustrating necessarily but it's disappointing". I know it is not my first time, and it won't be my last.

Lorenzo Cain singled off of Bryan Shaw to open the inning, which brought Andrew Miller into the game. "He didn't command the ball the way he wanted to", Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. "Sometimes because he's been so good we forget he's so young".

"The first pitch, I was looking for his fastball", Bonifacio said.

"Frankie committed to the backhand, but the ball didn't come up as high as he thought", Francona said.

Joakim Soria held down the eighth inning, barely, to escape with the lead. Kelvin Herrera allowed a two-out single in the ninth, but struck out pinch-hitter Austin Jackson for his 10th save.

Outfielders Bradley Zimmer and Daniel Robertson started the inning with back-to-back walks off of Kennedy, and two batters later, Lindor drove in Zimmer with an RBI single to center field.

With ace Corey Kluber set to leave the disabled list and his replacement Mike Clevinger pitching well in his absence, Salazar's spot in the rotation appears far from safe.

Both teams were rained out Thursday - the Indians at home against Cincinnati and the Royals in NY.

The Royals started their rally in the top of the fourth inning against Indians starter Mike Clevinger.

Duffy is coming off a win over the Yankees in which he allowed two runs in seven innings. Kluber made his first minor league rebab start Friday, throwing five scoreless innings for Double-A Akron.

With the loss, the Indians are now 0-2 at home this season in games in which a squirrel runs onto the field. The squirrel scurried around the outfield during the bottom of the sixth before being shooed through a doorway in the center field wall by ballpark workers after the inning.

"It feels like you're letting down your family in there (the clubhouse)", he said.

In a ideal world for them, the Royals would start winning and force Moore into becoming buyer rather than a seller in July. "He hit a slider came back over the plate and gave us the lead", said Yost. He was out since May 2.

LHP Jason Vargas (5-3, 2.30) is scheduled for his 10 start of the campaign - the most he has logged since 2014 - in hopes to recover from allowing nine runs in his past two outings.

Indians: RHP Danny Salazar will pitch on five days' rest as a result of Thursday's rainout.

The Kansas City Royals and Cleveland Indians meet Sunday in Major League Baseball action at Progressive Field. Nick Goody came in to relieve Logan and immediately surrendered a two-run double to Alcides "Career.340 slugging percentage" Escobar on one pitch.
