Royals-Indians Preview

(AP) -- The Cleveland Indians' chances at a second straight playoff appearance seemed all but gone last week.

They could find themselves in the thick of the hunt again after Monday night, when they open a three-game series with the visiting Kansas City Royals after completing a suspended game from last month.

The Indians (81-74) were five games out of a wild-card spot after a 3-1 loss in Houston on Sept. 15, their fourth straight defeat. They've since won five of six to pull within 3 1/2 games of the Royals (84-70), and could be 2 1/2 back when Monday's originally scheduled contest begins.
