Indians sweep Royals

Casey Blake continues to be locked in. He had two RBI and extended his hitting streak to 15 games as the Tribe beat the Royals 6-5 Thursday afternoon to complete a three-game sweep. Kansas City opened an early 2-0 lead but the Indians climbed on top with the help of RBI singles by Blake and Broussard in the third. Everyone in the lineup recorded a hit for the Tribe.

Doubles by Reggie Sanders and Tony Graffanino in the seventh got the Royals back in the game but Bob Wickman saved it in the ninth for his seventh of the season. Cliff Lee got his third win of the season, giving up four runs and striking out seven in six-plus innings. The Indinas are starting to play much better baseball.

“Some good things were happening out there,” Wedge said. “Overall, we’ve had a more consistent approach. That’s really where it all starts for us. Guys are fighting through at-bats and getting knocks when we need them.”

It seems like the Indians are getting back on the right track. I don’t know what was going on with them last week but they are playing much more relaxed now.
