sion standings will meet Friday night at Kauffman Stadium in the first contest of a three-game series.The first place Cleveland Indians (73-54) will face the fifth-place Kansas City Royals (38-90) http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , who are 35 1/2 games behind division leading Cleveland.For the Indians, this will be the final three games on a seven-game two-city road trip to Boston and Kansas City. The Indians split a four-game series with the Red Sox, who have the best record in the majors. Now comes a three-game series with the Royals, who have the second-worst record in the league.Article continues below ...The Indians won the first two games in Boston, and lost the last two, including a 7-0 blanking by the Red Sox on Thursday. The only good to come out of Thursday’s game for the Indians was the return of right-hander Josh Tomlin, who was activated off the disabled list prior to the game and pitched the last three innings of Thursday’s blowout.That was the silver lining to the loss, according to manager Terry Francona.“Josh got into a good rhythm and gave us three innings, so now we go into Kansas City with our bullpen back to where it should be,” Francona said. “(Friday’s game) will be every bit as important to us as (Thursday’s game).”Friday’s pitching matchup will be Cleveland right-hander Mike Clevinger (9-7, 3.25 ERA) versus Kansas City right-hander Brad Keller (6-5 Willie Mays Jersey , 3.32).Clevinger is coming off an 8-0 victory over Baltimore in his last start Sunday. In that game, Clevinger pitched six scoreless innings on seven hits, with seven strikeouts and one walk. He was removed from the game because his pitch count was at 104.Clevinger has rebounded nicely from a midseason slump. After going 1-4 with a 4.85 ERA in five July starts, Clevinger is 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA in four August outings.In two starts against the Royals this year, Clevinger is 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA. His last appearance against Kansas City was a 6-2 win on May 12, when he pitched 7 2/3 innings, allowing two runs and eight hits, with five strikeouts and no walks. In seven career appearances against the Royals, Clevinger is 4-0 with a 2.17 ERA.Keller has split the 2018 season between the starting rotation and the bullpen. In 14 starts, he is 5-4 with a 3.67 ERA. In 21 relief appearances, he is 1-1 http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , 2.01.Keller’s last start was a 5-4 win over the White Sox on Saturday, when he pitched five innings, allowing one run and five hits, with five strikeouts and no walks. In his last six starts, Keller is 4-2 with a 3.65 ERA.Friday will be Keller’s first career start against Cleveland. He has made two relief appearances against the Indians this season, going 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in 4 1/3 innings.The Indians will be without reliever Neil Ramirez, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list Thursday with lower back spasms.Despite losing their last two games in Boston, the streaking Indians come to Kansas City having won nine of their last 12 games. Cleveland is 15-6 in the month of August.The Royals have lost five games in a row and are 5-17 in August. ST. LOUIS (AP) — Three-time All-Star infielder Matt Carpenter and the St. Louis Cardinals have agreed to a contract that adds $37 million in guaranteed money for 2020 and ’21, a deal that includes an option for 2022.The 33-year-old has a $14.5 million salary this season a part of a $52 million, six-year deal that included an $18.5 million club option for 2020 with a $2 million buyout.Under the new $39 million, two-year deal Barry Bonds Jersey , he has guaranteed salaries of $18.5 million in both 2020 and ’21, and the Cardinals have an $18.5 million option for 2022 with a $2 million buyout. The 2022 salary would become guaranteed if he has 1,100 plate appearances combined in 2020 and ’21, including at least 550 in ’21.If the option fails to become guaranteed, it becomes a club option that includes $6.5 million in possible escalators based on 2021 plate appearances: $500,000 for 350, and $1 million each for 400 and each additional 50 through 650.He also gets a full no-trade provision and award bonuses that include $250,000 for making the All-Star team.“It’s really very humbling,” Carpenter said after Wednesday’s announcement. “To be able to potentially be here for an entire career is something that I don’t take for granted. Every day it’s something that I try to live up to.”He has a .273 batting average with 134 home runs and a .376 on base percentage in 1,031 games since debuting in 2011 with the Cardinals. Carpenter was an All-Star in 2013, 2014 Madison Bumgarner Jersey , and 2016. He finished among the top 10 in MVP voting in 2013 and last year.“He’s created enormous flexibility for the Cardinals because he was always willing to play a different position to allow us to maximize our team,” Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak said. “Really what it says is he’s truly a team player. So, the reason we’re motivated to try to do this is where he’s at in his career, we wanted him to continue to wear the Cardinal uniform.”Carpenter was a 13th-round draft pick by the Cardinals in 2009. He became the fourth St. Louis player since February to sign a long-term deal after first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, pitcher Miles Mikolas, and first baseman/outfielder José Martinez.“When we get a core player, we like to keep him here,” Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. said.“We’ve made every effort to do that since I’ve been here and before.”
