Acta hopes Tribe, Royals move past events
KANSAS CITY -- Indians manager Manny Acta wanted to let bygones be bygones.

After the Royals and Indians were involved in two bench-clearing incidents on Saturday, one resulting in three Cleveland ejections, Acta said he hoped there was closure regarding the episodes.

After Royals starter Jonathan Sanchez hit Shin-Soo Choo, it didn't take long for Indians starter Jeanmar Gomez to hit Mike Moustakas. The benches and bullpens emptied after each event.

"This is not something we want lingering," Acta said. "It's not good for any of the clubs. We have the utmost respect for [the Royals]. I really like their team and the job they've done over the years since I've been here. That's stuff that happens in the game. We just hope this blows over and we move on."
