The Battle 'Royal' For Last Place

The sports world is no doubt holding its collective breath as it awaits a dream baseball match-up: Two teams in a dead-heat, middle of August, three game series, the winner of the series moves ahead of the loser of the series.


High drama!


But, seriously, the Indians open a three-game set tonight in Kansas City against the Royals as the Tribe begins a two-city road trip that will continue to Detroit this weekend. The pitching match-up actually does lend some drama to the proceedings, as undefeated Jeanmar Gomez goes for his fourth straight win against last year’s Cy Young Award winner, Zach Greinke.


Plenty of tickets still available for anyone making a quick junket to western Missouri.
