Royals, Indians ride win streaks into series

The Cleveland Indians and Kansas City Royals continued their strong post-All-Star break surges with respective four-game sweeps over fellow American League Central adversaries.

The Indians and Royals aim to continue their runs of good fortune at the other's expense on Friday when they open a three-game series in Cleveland.

Cleveland brought out the brooms on Thursday and recorded its fifth straight win and 11th in 13 contests with a 6-3 victory over Detroit. The win moved the Indians a season-best 15 games over .500.
