Kluber in a whole heap of trouble - bases loaded, no outs in the 4th with the Astros already on top 1-0.

Two good swings. Both going with the pitch. Good adjustments second time through so far.

Excellent slide by Cabrera. He's been really engaged and focused over the last few games.

From the bad news department, James Shields just took a comeback liner off his pitching arm.

Edit: Shields stayed in.

Seems he's still on a bit of a pitch count, no?

Nice job from Gomes letting that Bedard pitch hit him after he looked about as lost as you possibly could up until that point.

If Indians hold on for the win, they'll become 1st team in the Majors to have 6 four-game sweeps since 1961 (Yankees).

Hammy said at the start of the game that Kluber didn't have a pitch count, but he could come out early anyway since he wouldn't want to take any chances. May as well play matchy-matchy with a bazillion relievers in the 'pen.

The crowd is into it in KC as Alex Rios just got thrown out at 3B attempting to advance on a fly out to LF from Beltre in the top 9th.

Rios was on 2nd with no-one out, so a huge out!

Be nice for KC to walk off now.

Royals nearly blow it with a foul out and a 4-2 ground out but, on a 3-2 pitch, Justin Maxwell just hit one to the moon..... walk off grand slam!

Tribe 1.5 games up on the Rangers.

Is this fun or what? Who among us thought for sure we'd be scoreboard watching the last week of this season? I was hoping the Tribe would be above .500 for the first time in years...
