Royals aim for first sweep in Cleveland since 2003

CLEVELAND -- The slumping Cleveland Indians on Sunday will attempt to avoid being swept by the Kansas City Royals in a three-game series at Progressive Field for the first time in 14 years.

All of a sudden, playing at home is not necessarily an advantage for the Indians. The Indians are 8-13 at Progressive Field this year. That's the worst home record in the American League and the third-worst home record in the majors.

"It's frustrating," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "And when frustration gets in the way of how you perform, that's not good. We need to go out and play baseball every day like we love the game, regardless of what happened the day before. We need to do a better job of that."
