    ARLINGTON, Texas A cloud of chalk and dirt enveloped home plate as Lorenzo Cain collided with Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos. Cain was slow to rise. He dug himself out from the pile and dusted off his uniform. A sight that has become familiar on...
  • Indians edge Royals, 3-2, in 11 innings

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. The solitary stay at the summit lasted 19 days, long enough to spur a Sports Illustrated cover, raise expectations and dare a long-suffering group of fans to dream. The Royals ascended into first place in the American League Central on...
