Royals Cool Off Hot Hitting Indians

Associated Press - June 10, 2014 10:28 pm

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Jason Vargas cooled down hot hitting Cleveland, Eric Hosmer hit a two run homer and the Kansas City Royals held on for a 9-5 victory over the Indians Tuesday night.

Hosmer also drove in a run during a four run fourth inning. Alex Gordon homered in the eighth and Mike Moustakas hit a two run shot later that inning as the Royals (32-32) moved back to .500 by matching their second best run total of the season.

Vargas (6-2) gave up six hits and hit three batters with pitches, but didn’t allow a run until Jason Kipnis drove in a pair with a two out double in the eighth. Tim Collins entered and gave up another run before Aaron Crow yielded two more in the ninth.

Corey Kluber (6-4), who dominated the Royals earlier this season, allowed six runs – three earned – and six hits over five innings. He struck out five and walked two.
