Brian Graham, KCSportsNation The Royals are well out of the race, so they have nothing to play for, right? Don’t tell them that. The young Royals won their seventh straight game Saturday night, 10-3, sending the White Sox to their seventh straight loss. Mike Moustakas hit his third homerun (4) in four games, extending his hitting streak to seven games. Moustakas is hitting .519 in the streak.
After taking a few hours to digest Missouri’s 37-30 overtime loss last Friday night, I come away being more encouraged than discouraged. The offense was very encouraging and much improved, looking ten times better than it did a week prior in a lackluster 17-6 win over visiting Miami (OH), mostly because of the play of quarterback James Franklin.
