The Kansas City Royals have a chance to take their series against the Houston Astros with one more win.
For the third time in as many nights, the Kansas City Royals are looking to hand the Houston Astros a loss. So far we’ve seen the Royals beat the Astros twice, which is impressive considering how good Houston is this season and how bad Kansas City has been all year.
The Astros currently have the fifth best record in MLB and the second best record in the American League. Meanwhile, Kansas City has the third worst record in the American League and sixth worst record in MLB.
But, that doesn’t matter.
Kansas City has found a way to defeat the Astros twice. The Royals first beat the Astros 7-6 on Monday and then gave them a second loss by a score of 3-1 on Tuesday. Now, on Wednesday, the Royals have a chance to clinch the four-game series and get ready for a road trip on a positive note.
Taking this series from the Astros doesn’t magically fix everything that’s wrong with the Royals. Nor does it mean Houston is suddenly a bad team. But it does show some potential and could help give Kansas City Royals fans some hope about what this team could be in the future, something that’s desperately needed.
