Royals Rally Against the Top Teams in Major League Baseball

Royals Rally Against the Top Teams in Major League Baseball

August 26, 2017

 The Kansas City Royals finished up a 6 game home stand this week with AL Central leading Cleveland Indians and NL West contenders Colorado Rockies providing the opposition.

After the Royals won on Sunday to claim just one out of the 3 against the Indians, the Royals began a 3 game interleague series versus the Rockies. The Royals on Tuesday welcomed back all-star catcher Salvador Perez, and he immediately helped the team as they scored a win over Colorado. 

Tuesday night saw Royals starter Danny Duffy throw a no-hitter into the 6th inning till Rockies star Nolan Arenado hit a 411-foot homer over the center field wall. Before the game ended Royals fans also saw primary reliever Kelvin Herrera load the bases in the 9th inning then leave the contest with a forearm injury. 

The hard-fought win helped the Royals stay above .500 at 63-61 and gave the team a record of 6-9 in interleague play with 5 games left to be played. The Royals finish up Inter league play the last weekend of the season when they host the Arizona Diamondbacks Sept. 29 - Oct. 1st. 

The Royals continue their slate of games against top teams in MLB this weekend by visiting the first-place Cleveland Indians. Games on Friday and Saturday night start at 6:10 p.m. with Sunday's series finale beginning at 12:10 p.m. The Royals remain in the hunt for one of two American League Wild card berths, and any win against Cleveland will help the team's efforts to claim one, if not win the Division. Royals Manager Ned Yost will send Jason Vargas, Jason Hammel and Danny Duffy to the mound this weekend.

Royals fans take note that Saturday's game will be shown on national sports network FS1.
