Royals ride momentum into rubber match at Cleveland

The Cleveland Indians were poised to win their eighth straight game against an American League Central rival before the bottom fell out in the ninth inning on Tuesday.

Now, the Indians will look to avert losing their second series to the last-place Kansas City Royals on Wednesday afternoon when the division rivals play the rubber match of their three-game set in Cleveland.

The Indians, who were swept in Kansas City from April 12-14, saw Brad Hand surrender five hits and five runs on 13 pitches without retiring a batter in an 8-6 setback to the Royals on Tuesday.
