It was a fun time at Progressive Field, where the Kansas City Royals and Cleveland Indians tangled.

Cleveland left-hander Jeff Belge was in fine form, shutting out the Kansas City Royals, 4-0. Kansas City has now lost 8 in a row.

The Royals had trouble solving Belge, who surrendered no earned runs on 3 hits over 7 innings.

"Everyone's kind of edgy right now," said losing manager , "but nothing a couple of wins wouldn't cure."
