In the ninth, Allen hit Lorenzo Cain with a pitch to open the inning. So if you see something that doesn't fit the patterns I've described, it's probably because the people involved know something the rest of us don't.

The pitching staff combined for a one-hit shutout and pulled out the series win despite batting.208 (20-for-96) in the three contests.

Athletics 6, Tigers 5: Adam Rosales hit a two-run single off closer Francisco Rodriguez with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting Oakland to a victory over Detroit. "He has plus-plus stuff and the ability to locate pitches well when he needs to".

Carlos Santana had three hits, including an RBI single in the fifth that followed Yan Gomes' double for the game's only run.

The pitcher wants the hitter to hit a groundball into the shift; the hitter needs a pitch that allows him to hit a ball away from the shift or a pitch up in the zone that allows the hitter to go over the shift.

It was at this point in the game that I made a decision to write about situational hitting. It was like a changeup.

"I just strive for better". "I have to keep it going". "I have to make that play and be an athlete out there".

Kansas City Royals left fielder Alex Gordon catches a fly ball hit by Cleveland Indians' Abraham Almonte during the seventh inning of a baseball game at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., Saturday, May 6, 2017.

Edwin Encarnacion homered with one out in the top of the fourth for the Indians' run. The Royals have been shut out four times and scored two runs or fewer in 15 games. The offense had two runners in scoring position with one out. Third base coach Mike Jirschele stopped Hosmer at third.

The Royals got an insurance run in the sixth when Jorge Bonifacio singled and scored on Alcides Escobar's two-out single off reliever Nick Goody. He was recalled Wednesday but did not appear in a game.

But having an arm like Clevinger big-league is a major asset for the Cleveland Indians. Kelvin Herrera took the loss for Kansas City. Butera had replaced catcher Salvador Perez after Perez took a foul tip to the left arm.

The Indians will travel to Toronto before opening a three-game set with the Blue Jays on Monday at 7:07 p.m. ET at the Rogers Centre.

The Cleveland Indians needed a quality start Sunday, and Mike Clevinger delivered.
