Indians crush Royals in laughable 11-4 loss

It was not as close as the final score suggested.

The Kansas City Royals lost to the Cleveland Indians 11-4. En route to the final tally, the Royals allowed five home runs, walked seven batters, and hit an additional two with a pitch. Ian Kennedy was beyond terrible, and the Royals only managed four baserunners against Carlos Carrasco before grabbing some meaningless runs in the eighth inning against a lax bullpen.

With a heat index exceeding 100 degrees, the Royals fans and players melted at the end of two losing series following the All-Star break.

Rather than writing about the gruelling specifics of how the Indians destroyed the Royals, I think it's more appropriate, given the Royals starting squad's effort in this game and the All-Star break hangover, to instead categorize each inning in GIF form.
