CLEVELAND (WJW) — The Cleveland Indians lost to the Kansas City Royals in game two of the three game series on Saturday. Last night, the Tribe won the home opener 2-0.

The Royals quickly took the lead scoring two runs. Cesar Hernandez then helped the Indians tie back up in the third inning.

Clevinger had a rough start to the game giving up two solo back-to-back home runs. However, he settled in after that.

The teams were tied up until the 10th inning and had to play by a new rule this year, which requires the batter who made the last out of the previous inning to start on second base. Unless, the team decides to use a pinch runner.

The rule has gotten mixed reviews from fans and apparently the Indians too.

The Indians take on the Royals again at home on Sunday at 1:10 p.m.
