Indians-Royals Preview

(AP) -- The Cleveland Indians have lost more games to left-handed starters than anyone else and face another one Wednesday night.

They'll try to hand Danny Duffy his first home defeat in nine starts and even this three-game series against the Kansas City Royals.

The Royals' Jason Vargas allowed two runs over six innings in Tuesday's 5-3 victory to drop Cleveland (9-16) to 2-9 against left-handed starters. The Indians totaled four hits.
