View Full Version : Six in a row!
The Royals won their sixth in a row tonight, the longest current winning streak in the league. They're now only 3 games out of 3rd place and 4.5 games out of 2nd in Central. It's not going to be something to brag about because Minnesota's running away with it, but the Royals could make a run at 2nd place. I would be more than happy if they finished somewhere out of the bottom at this point considering how poorly we've finished in the last few years.

It's amazing the kind of starting pitching they've gotten since the all star break (and before). Other than Suppan, they've been rock-solid, even the rookies.
Byrd pitches tomorrow, should be a decent shot at win #7 for the team, and with #13 (!!!) for him, although Buehrle gives us fits IIRC.
Another amazing part of it is that they're doing it without Mike Sweeney, who's missed the last four games because of injury. The lineup looks woefully weak without him in it, but guys like Ibanez and Brent Mayne have really picked up the slack.
It will be interesting tomorrow night, our best pitcher versus the Sox best arm, hopefully Byrdie will outduel Buehrle
