Cleveland Indians Baseball - Cleveland, Ohio

CLEVELAND (AP) – Francisco Lindor hit one of Cleveland’s four solo homers and drove in three runs, and the Indians completed a four-game sweep of the World Series champion Kansas City Royals with a rain-delayed 7-0 victory Sunday.

Corey Kluber (5-6) allowed two hits and was pulled after the sixth inning when the game was delayed by inclement weather for 3 hours, 10 minutes.

Lindor, Carlos Santana and rookie Tyler Naquin homered in the fifth. Mike Napoli connected in the fourth.

The Indians moved past the Royals into first place in the AL Central on Saturday. Cleveland has won five straight overall and six of seven against Kansas City this season.
