Hafner heating up but Tribe loses two of three to KC

Travis Hafner went deep for the second-straight day Sunday but it wasn’t enough as the Indians lost to the Royals 6-5. Hafner’s two-run shot in the sixth sparked a five-run rally with the other three runs crossing the plate on Grady Sizemore’s homer four batters later. Scott Elarton again struggled, giving up five runs in six innings, though only three of those runs were earned. The ice-cold Aaron Boone, meanwhile, sat out his second-consecutive game with Jose Hernandez getting the start at third. Let’s hope the time off does him some good.
