With five home runs the Indians crush the Royals 11 × 4

The Cleveland Indians hit five home runs, two of them by Tyler Naquin, to beat the defending champions, the Kansas City Royals, on Wednesday in the Major Leagues, with a score of 11 × 4.

The others who homered for the ‘Tribe’ were Jason Kipnis, Carlos Santana of the Dominican Republic and Mike Napoli of Italian descent.

The win went to Venezuelan starter Carlos Carrasco (7-3), who allowed only six hits in six solid scoreless innings.

Carrasco allowed an RBI double by Nicaraguan Cheslor Cuthbert in the fourth, but the offensive support of his teammates allowed him to work comfortably afterwards.
