Bruce homers twice, Indians rout Royals

(TSX / STATS) -- KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The good news for the Cleveland Indians was not Jay Bruce's huge offensive night but that Corey Kluber's ankle injury is not thought to be serious.

Bruce homered twice and drove in five runs as the Indians battered the Kansas City Royals 10-1 on Friday.

Kluber sprained his right ankle and pulled up lame while running to cover first base on Eric Hosmer's sixth-inning single.
