Royals-Indians Preview

(AP) -- After failing to move in front of first-place Detroit over the weekend, the Kansas City Royals got some help to remain close in the race for the AL Central crown.

Trailing the Tigers by just one game, the Royals will also look to push the fading Indians to the brink as the two clubs continue a key series Tuesday in Cleveland.

Kansas City (85-71) lost Monday in the completion of a suspended game from Aug. 31 before Danny Duffy pitched six strong innings for his first win in more than a month, leading the Royals to a 2-0 victory over Cleveland in the regularly scheduled game.
