Royals' Vargas looks to continue hold over Indians

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Manager Terry Francona decided to liven up the Cleveland clubhouse before Friday night's game with the Kansas City Royals.

With 23 games in 23 dates, a doubleheader on Thursday and Kansas City the last stop of an 11-game four-city trip, Francona arranged to have a DJ for the clubhouse and a Pop-A-Shot basketball competition.

"We were all getting a little tired," Francona said. "It's just kind of our way of showing them that, one, we acknowledge the fact that they're out there playing so much, but also that we care.
