Royals-Indians Preview

(AP) -- The Cleveland Indians are hoping a pep talk by manager Terry Francona will help kick-start their season.

The Kansas City Royals still remember a series in Cleveland last season when they were swept.

These AL Central rivals meet for the first time Monday night to open a four-game series, with both looking to improve upon poor divisional records.
