Indians-Royals Preview

(AP) -- Following one of the worst performances of his career, Yordano Ventura should be eager to face the Cleveland Indians.

Ventura looks to continue his mastery of the Indians and help the Kansas City Royals to a fourth straight win Friday night at Kauffman Stadium.

Since reeling off 10 consecutive wins last month for a brief stay atop the AL Central, the Royals (51-50) have lost 18 of 30. They have, however, shown signs lately with wins in their last three games, including a 2-1, 14-inning victory in Thursday's opener of this four-game series.
