Bruce homers twice, Indians rout Royals

(TSX / STATS) -- KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Jay Bruce homered twice and drove in five runs as the Cleveland Indians battered the Kansas City Royals 10-1 Friday night.

It could, however, be a costly victory for the Indians. Corey Kluber won his fourth straight August start, but the Indians' ace pulled up lame while running to cover first base on Eric Hosmer's sixth-inning infield single.

That prompted a visit from manager Terry Francona and the trainer. Kluber stayed in the game for one more batter, a Melky Cabrera single, before being led off the field by the trainer. Kluber was diagnosed with a right ankle sprain.
