Defense, bullpen betray Royals in 5-3 loss to Indians

The defense and bullpen form the bedrock of this Royals team. Both proved faulty on Wednesday night in a 5-3 loss to the Indians in Cleveland as an RBI double by Jason Kipnis in the seventh inning was the difference. The Royals (10-10) and Indians play again on Thursday afternoon with a chance to salvage a four-game split. They have lost three of their last four.
