Hell Freezing Over Newsbeat

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Royals win 9th straight to take over 1st place

Alex Gordon and Mike Moustakas homered as part of a seven-run second inning, and the Royals displaced the Detroit Tigers atop the AL Central on Tuesday night with an 11-4 victory, their ninth in a row.

Sure they laughed when the Royals launched their 30 year plan to return to the playoffs after a disappointing flameout in ‘86.  But who’s laughing now that it’s coming home a few years early.
