Royals 12, Indians 0: KC routs Tribe in Fukudome’s debut

The Kosuke Fukudome era began in dubious fashion Friday night, with the Indians getting clobbered by the Royals 12-0 at Progressive Field.

Fukudome, acquired in a trade with the Cubs on Thursday, went 0-for-4 in his Cleveland debut, grounding out for the final out of the game.

Carlos Carrasco started for the Indians and allowed seven runs on seven hits in 3 1/3 innings. He was ejected after Melky Cabrera hit a grand slam off him in the fourth and he threw behind the head of the following batter, Billy Butler.
