Royals get first of 10 remaining chances to beat Indians

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- In the next 15 games, the Kansas City Royals should have a clear vision of whether they are truly postseason contenders.

They play six of their next nine games against the defending American League champion Cleveland Indians, who lead the AL Central.

The nine other games are all against postseason wannabes: the Colorado Rockies, Tampa Bay Rays and Minnesota Twins.
