KANSAS CITY, Mo. Botte Ugg Fille Pas Cher . -- Indians manager Terry Francona sat in the visiting clubhouse at Kauffman Stadium, moments after a 3-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals, and knew only that Boston awaited his club in the postseason.He didnt know where the series would begin. That was still to be determined by games elsewhere, as was whether Cleveland would need to make up a rained out game in Detroit on Monday.Well, Francona said with a grin and a shrug, were either going to shower and go home or shower and go to Detroit. Either way, Im showering.Suds up that loofah, Tito. Youre heading home.The Tigers loss to the Braves coupled with Bostons loss to the Blue Jays gave Cleveland (94-67) homefield advantage in the divisional round. The newly minted AL Central champions open against Boston (93-69) on Thursday at Progressive field with Trevor Bauer slated to take the hill.You get to the last weekend of the year, you see a lot of guys kind of tailing off, said Francona, who has yet to win a postseason game in Cleveland. Our guys never did that.Not even in their regular-season finale.Josh Tomlin (13-9) dueled with the Royals Ian Kennedy (11-11) into the eighth before finally pulling ahead. Carlos Santana drew a walk off Kennedy to start the inning, Jason Kipnis followed with a double and Frnacisco Lindor hit a fly ball deep enough to right field for the lead.Tomlin got the first batter in the eighth before Andrew Miller finished it up, and Cody Allen handled the ninth to earn his 32nd save and give the Indians a nice boost heading into the playoffs.Ive never really experienced the postseason, said Tomlin, the expected Game 3 starter, so I know Ill be ready when that time comes. We knew we put ourselves in good position.It was a frustrating finale to an injury plagued season for the Royals, who had been to the past two World Series and were coming off their first championship since 1985. A dismal July nearly buried them, an inspired August got them back into contention, and a stumbling finish left them at 81-81.It was their first non-winning season in four years.We were just one win away from having a winning season. We had four cracks at it at the end of the year and just couldnt get it, Royals manager Ned Yost said. Offensively, we just couldnt do it.Meanwhile, there were so many playoff permutations riding on the final day of the regular season that Francona was still trying to sort everything out 3 hours before first pitch.The only thing he knew was his club was playing Boston on Thursday -- somewhere.They fell into a 1-0 hole when Jarrod Dyson and Whit Merrifield opened the game with doubles off Tomlin, the expected Game 3 starter in the divisional series, but the lead didnt even last the two innings.The Indians answered in the third when Tyler Naquin was plunked by a pitch from Ian Kennedy, and Yan Gomes went deep to left field on the first big league pitch hed seen since July 17.Kansas City tied it up when Cheslor Cuthbert homered leading off the fifth inning, but the Indians were able to coax across one more run to once more beat a team theyve dominated this season.One mistake, I gave up a home run and it kind of cost me, Kennedy said. Overall, I was really happy how the outing went. At least, I gave our team a real solid chance.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: Gomes, activated from the 60-day DL on Friday, started for the first time since breaking his right hand in a rehab game Sept. 14. Its been a long way back, Gomes said. They said I cant hurt it any more. Youll just have to play through it, play through the pain.Royals: 1B Eric Hosmer missed the finale with a wrist issue hes been battling for weeks. C Sal Perez was the DH to protect an ailing hamstring. ... RHP Dillon Gee is scheduled to have another procedure Oct. 11 for blood clots in his shoulder and lung. The issue popped up during a start in Detroit.UP NEXTIndians: The chase begins for their first playoff victory since 2007, when they lost to the Red Sox -- managed by Francona -- in a seven-game AL championship series.Royals: Time to think about next season. General manager Dayton Moore has some roster decisions to make, including whether to exercise team options on SS Alcides Escobar and RHP Wade Davis. Bottes Ugg Pour Bebe .ca! Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all players are responsible for their sticks. We witnessed that when Zack Kassian hit Edmontons Sam Gagner in the face after a missed check. Ugg Mini Bailey Button Pas Cher . The mixed zone is not a place to make friends. http:///...y-button-france.html . Giroud, who wasnt in the starting lineup for two matches after allegations about his private life and a decline in form, scored twice in the first half. Tomas Rosickys chip made it 3-0 before half time at Emirates Stadium, while defender Laurent Koscielny scored an unmarked header in the second half. ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs are not expecting Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry to join his teammates for the start of training camp this weekend, a source said.Veterans are to report to camp Friday and the Chiefs first full-squad practice is Saturday.Coach Andy Reid said he has been in contact recently with Berry, the Chiefs unsigned franchise-tag player, but was unaware whether Berry would report Friday.Im hoping hes here, Reid said at Missouri Western State University, where the Chiefs will begin a three-day minicamp for quarterbacks and rookies Wednesday. If hes not, I understand that, too. Ive been doing this for a few years, so I know how things go. It will all work out one way or another and hes going to continue to be a heck of a football player for us. We look forward to getting him back in here and rolling with him.We love Eric Berry. Hes a huge part of this football team. Whether hes here or not [on Friday], I cant answer that.NFL Network earlier reported news of Berrys intended absence.Berry has yet to accept the one-year contract worth about $10.8 million the Chiefs are obligated to offer him as their franchise player. The sides failed to agree on terms of a multiyear contract by July 15, the deadline for getting such deals done with a franchise player. Chausson Ugg Femme Pas Cher. If Berry plays for the Chiefs this year, it will be under the one-year contract. He cant participate in training camp without first signing the contract.Reid didnt sound as if he was expecting Berrys absence to be extended.Whatever way you cut it, Eric Berry is a great football player and good things are going to happen to him here, Reid said. I know how hes wired. He loves to play the game. Thats how it is.Its a weird dynamic that youre juggling with finances and playing and all those things. Ive seen it before. Guys normally come in and they just go. When its time to play, they play. They put the business side aside and they get after it.Reid indicated linebacker Justin Houston, the Chiefs leader in sacks in each of the past four seasons, would not participate in training camp. Houston underwent knee surgery in February.Thats not going to happen, Reid said. Hes not going to work here. Hell be here. Hes just not going to be able to do the football stuff.The Chiefs final practice in St. Joseph is Aug. 18.
