CLEVELAND — Royals rookie outfielder Bubba Starling had nothing to work off of, other than a scouting report.

Cleveland Indians closer Brad Hand’s entry into the game typically serves as the signal to drive home safely. At that point, the outcome is a formality and resistance is futile.

Starling, a former fifth overall draft pick and local multisport star at Gardner Edgerton High, kept his plan of attack simple with his team down two in the ninth. Starling wanted to “see it up” and get a good pitch.
