The sweep of the Detroit Tigers Thursday sealed up a winning month of August for the Kansas City Royals.
The third spot in the batting order is supposed to be a position that a guy gets the opportunity to get guys who are on base in to score runs.
As a guy who has lacked in home run power over the beginning of his career in Kansas City, Billy Butler, has taken the bull by the horns this season setting a new career high in home runs only 111 games into the 2012 season.
After just a horrendous month of July, the Kansas City Royals start off the month of August on a good note.
Since being only 3 games under .500 and sniffing the top of the division the Kansas City Royals have done nothing but struggle.
Two years waiting for the All Star Game to come to Kansas City is over.
Although three games remain before the All-Star break, the Kansas City Royals concluded the first half of their season on a good note with a 9-6 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.
The shoes that have to be filled at third base in Kansas City are rather large and may never be filled by any Kansas City Royal’s player ever.
The Kansas City Royals have accomplished something two nights in a row that they have not done all season long. Winning in walk-off fashion.
With inter league play about to be in full swing the Kansas City Royals seem to be in a pretty good position to make a move in the later part of the month of June.
