(AP) -- After each team took turns in coming up with big efforts at the plate in a doubleheader split, it could be time for the Kansas City Royals to do so in Monday night's series finale with the Cleveland Indians.
The Royals try to add to the woes of beleaguered Indians starter Ubaldo Jimenez when these teams complete a four-game set at Kauffman Stadium.
Friday's rainout created Sunday's doubleheader, with Kansas City (13-9) winning 9-0 in the opener before Cleveland (9-13) bounced back with a 10-3 rout in the nightcap.
The winless Jimenez (0-2, 10.06 ERA) has had a full week off to try to fix his problems since yielding four runs in five-plus innings in last Sunday's 5-4 victory at Houston.
That effort marked improvement after the right-hander allowed seven runs in each of his previous two outings.
Jimenez is allowing left-handers to bat .316 with all four home runs against him while right-handed hitters are just 4 for 24 (.167).
There is hope for him Monday...
