Kansas City Royals

Kansas City Royals lost the opening game against the Indians with a final score of 2-0. It was a decent effort from them since the Indians had a tough time to score more than two. In the second outing, Kansas went deep from the plate when they smashed three runs and restricted Cleveland to two. The Royals are no more the same team as last year with their key players at their peak. Salvador Perez and Jorge Soler smashed a couple of solo homers to put them ahead for good. From the pitching end, Greg Holland saved the Royals with the lead. Kansas is yet to announce their starter for this game.

Cleveland Indians

Cleveland Indians are not an easy team to defeat, especially after what they produced last year. The Indians are strong, powerful and strategically inclined.
