Series Preview: Royals vs. Cleveland Indians, September 27-30

Series Preview: Royals vs. Minnesota Twins, September 13-16

The Royals have four more games at home before they hit the road for one last time in 2018 and they welcome in the Minnesota Twins. It’s the final time these two teams will match up, so they know each other well and have been relatively evenly matched this season. We all know what a […]
