The Kansas City Royals had no issue defeating the Houston Astros at home. Can they do it on the road?
Well, it’s safe to say the last series between the Kansas City Royals and the Houston Astros certainly went Kansas City’s way. The series in question, a four game series that happened last week in Kauffman Stadium, was thrilling to watch for Royals fans.
It was definitely considerably less fun for any Astros fans who tried to watch it.
Kansas City got off to a great start in that series, winning the first game by a score of 7-6. From there, the Royals went out and won games two and three by scores of 3-1 and 3-2 respectively before dropping game four by a score of 6-3 in 10 innings.
That series apparently jumpstarted a bit of a hot streak for the Royals who have since gone on to Chicago and swept the Cubs with relative ease.
Now, winners of four of their last five games, the Royals are in Houston and will meet up with the Astros this evening.

After defeating the Houston Astros three out of four times back home in Kansas City, it’ll be fascinating to see if the Royals can have that same sort of performance on the road. Interestingly, the Royals have been decent at home, but they’ve definitely been a mess in other teams’ stadiums.
That meager road record of 23-37 is pretty rough and the Royals will need to play pretty good baseball to beat the Astros at home. But, Houston has been less-than-stellar against less-than-stellar teams.
There’s definitely a chance that Kansas City can go in and get this win.
