Indians beat Royals 4-3, eliminate KC from division title contention

The Royals’ reign in the American League Central came to a sudden end Wednesday night. It lasted 363 days and included a second straight pennant, a franchise's second World Series championship and the most raucous parade in Kansas City history. It expired here at Progressive Field, succumbing to injuries, fatigue, an inconsistent bullpen and a successful insurgency from the Cleveland Indians.
