The Indians have a chance to end their road trip with a winning record, if they can beat the Royals on Monday night.

 

The Tribe is currently 4-4 on their 9 game, 11 day road trip.

 

Ubaldo Jimenez will be on the hill for the Indians and he has struggled this season.

 

He looked good in his first start, but since has not looked the same.

 

Jimenez, (0-2, 10.06 ERA) is 4-4 in his career versus KC and has an 4.43 ERA.

 

***Corey Kluber made a great start for the Indians on Sunday (7 IP, 2 ER and is now 2-0, 2.25 ERA on the season.

 

Cleveland's offense has really been ALL or NOTHING this season.  They lost 9-0 in the first game on Sunday and then won 10-3 in the 2nd game.

The Tribe has scored 3 runs or less in 14 of their 22 games.

 

They have proven they can explode and but they need to do it on a more regular basis.

 

* The Good news is they have had injuries, starting pitching has not been great and the offense hasn't been consistent, and they are only 4 games out of first place.

 

** Catcher Carlos Santana is leading baseball in batting average hitting .388 and has 4 HR and 10 RBI.
