Royals hit way to sweep
Results rosy for De La Rosa
Jorge De La Rosa worked around a two-run third inning to keep the Indians in check over five innings, and Esteban German's RBI double in the fifth gave the Royals -- who put together a 14-hit attack -- the lead for good. Kansas City received strong relief from Ambiorix Burgos and Ryan Braun.

Series at a glance:
Westbrook doesn't have it
The Indians backed Jake Westbrook with two runs in the third inning, one via Grady Sizemore's 24th homer, but things started getting rough for Westbrook in the third, and he gave up 11 hits and four runs over six innings. Meanwhile, the Tribe went hitless from the fourth until the seventh innings.
