This is a quick preview of MLB’s scheduled games for Sunday July 14th, 2013 Games – 15 AL Games – 7 NL Games – 7 IL Games – 1 American League Games (7): Kansas City Royals (43-48) @ Cleveland Indians (50-44) – 1:05 pm Kansas City ace James Shields (4-6, 3.12) will try to give the Royals their first win of the series against Ubaldo Jimenez (7-4, 3.47) and the tribe. Cleveland has a good chance to sweep the Royals, but will need to jump on top of Shields early. The bat of Cleveland third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall propelled this team to victory yesterday, hitting a grand slam in the 6th inning. On paper it looks like Shields has the advantage, but Ubaldo shined in his last start and will need to do it again against a very potent Blue Jays’ lineup. Series score: CLE 2-0 Minnesota Twins (38-53) @ New York Yankees (51-43) – 1:05 pm The Yankees have only lost one game when scoring five or more runs this season. With pitcher C.C. Sabathia (9-7, 3.99) on the mound, the Yankees look for more ...
