Danny Salazar allowed three runs on seven hits with no walks and seven punch outs over seven innings in the win over the Royals Sunday.

Oh Danny Boy improved to 2-0 in two starts since be recalled from Triple-A Columbus on July 22nd. The strikeouts that you have come to expect from the youngster are still there as he has 13 over his last 12 innings and while he walked three in his first start after the call up he righted the ship on Sunday by not allowing a single free pass and has yet to allow a home run after serving up eight of them over his first eight starts of the season. Salazar will get another favorable matchup in his next start on Saturday as he will face the worst team in baseball in the Texas Rangers.

Yan Gomes had a big day at the plate Sunday going 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI, and a run scored in the convincing win over the Royals.

Gomes has been swinging a hot bat of late as he has at least on hit in each of his last four games and five multi-hit performances over his last 10 to raise his season average from .269 to .281. The improved production at the plate recently is even more impressive considering that seven of his 15 hits over his past 10 games have gone for extra bases, including two home runs to give him 14 on the season.

Chris Dickerson is not in the Indians' starting lineup on Sunday.

With lefty Bruce Chen on the hill for the Royals, the Tribe prefers to go with the right-handed bat of Ryan Raburn in left field. Dickerson will be available off the bench though.

Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the Indians' starting lineup on Sunday.

Chisenhall was a late scratch Saturday due to an illness, so it would appear that whatever it was, it is still lingering. Mike Aviles will handle the work at the hot corner Sunday.
