Indians top Royals for 1st 4-game sweep at Kauffman Stadium

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Triston McKenzie bounced back from a rugged start to pitch one-hit ball into the sixth inning and the Cleveland Indians completed a four-game sweep by blanking the Kansas City Royals 4-0 Thursday.

It was the fifth straight loss for the Royals, who came into the series with the best record in baseball. Cleveland went 6-1 on its road trip against the White Sox and Kansas City, and has won nine of 11.

This was the first time in the 48-year history of Kauffman Stadium that the Indians swept a four-game series at the park. The last time Cleveland swept a four-game set in Kansas City, it was against the A's in Municipal Stadium in 1960 - Tito Francona, the father of Indians manager Terry Francona, totaled five hits for Cleveland in that previous sweep.
