The Indians-Royals game in Kansas City Thursday evening was quite the odd one. Corey Kluber (underrated ace, by the way) had a perfect game through 6 1/3 innings. The Indians only had one hit of their own, at that time, off Danny Duffy. The game went into the bottom of the eighth tied, 0-0.

The oddities didn't stop there. Greg Holland, Kansas City's All-Star closer who entered the game 26-of-27 in save chances, blew a save in the ninth.

Kluber would then hold the Royals down in the bottom of the ninth to send the game to extras. Kluber's final line? 9 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 10 K. Decent. Also, this:

And the Royals won it in 14, 2-1. They racked up a whopping (note sarcasm!) five hits in 14 innings and won the game.
