Cheslor Cuthbert not in Royals' Sunday lineup

Duda's shot in the seventh off Bauer (0-1) was one of only three hits by Kansas City and a rare highlight as the teams survived nine innings with the temperature hovering around freezing. Now he has to master completing one.

Kansas City Royals third baseman Cheslor Cuthbert is not in the lineup Sunday against the Cleveland Indians.

Brantley missed Cleveland's first six games while on the disabled list recovering from offseason ankle surgery.

The Indians will be turning to righty Corey Kluber (0-1, 2.40 ERA), who struck out 265 hitters over 203 innings a year ago (with only 36 walks), while finishing the season 18-4 overall with a 2.25 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP.

"He's an easy guy to bet on", manager Terry Francona said. He's the heart and soul of our team. The Indians scored three runs the first inning of the series and scored three runs in the last two innings of the series.

The previous record was 33 degrees for games against Toronto on April 5 and April 7, 1996.

Some of Carrasco's success may have had something to do with muscle memory left over from last year's home opener. "At the end of the day, the weather's not going to change". I'm feeling good right now.

"He's going to get a chance to play, and he's played here before and helped us win before", Francona said. He shutout Cleveland for 6 innings, giving up 4 hits with 8 strikeouts. The right-hander retired 13 straight before running into trouble in the sixth, when the Royals loaded the bases with one put.

Gregory Polanco turned on a Mahle pitch and sent it into the right-field seats for a two-run homer in the fifth. Cody Allen (1-0) worked the ninth for the win.

IShares MSCI World (URTH) Declines 1.27% for April 8
A CCI reading of +100 may represent overbought conditions, while readings near -100 may indicate oversold territory. A value of 50-75 would identify a very strong trend, and a value of 75-100 would lead to an extremely strong trend.

Francona joked about Miller's ability to escape self-inflicted jams. That's a good feeling.

Francisco Lindor and Edwin Encarnacion had two hits apiece for the Indians, who had six hits. They only got four hits, but that was enough thanks to Carrasco and their top-flight bullpen.

Cleveland's pitchers did an absolutely phenomenal job against the Royals.

Down 2-0 in the first, the Indians benefited from Duffy's early wildness to score three times. After Duffy's third walk, Brantley dropped his single into right.

"I knew I got it, but I kept looking up and I was like, 'Oh no, is the wind going to kill it?' " Gomes said.

For the Royals, they are just happy to be playing some games. Davis, who hit a game-tying homer in the eighth inning of Game 7 in the 2016 World Series, re-signed with the club this winter. The Indians are scheduled to play home games in each of the next seven days.

"You have to figure out a way to stay warm", he said.

The forecast for Monday isn't much better, but the show must go on.

In the three-game series with Kansas City that ended Sunday, the Progressive Field temperature was 41, 34 and 32 degrees.
