Kansas City extends winning streak to nine games
The Kansas City Royals continue their winning ways as they have extended their winning streak to nine games.
The Royals defeated the Minnesota Twins by a score of 7-2 Thursday afternoon, completing a three-game sweep of their American League Central division rival.
The pitching staff has been excellent throughout the course of the winning streak. Royals' pitchers own a 1.50 ERA during the nine games.
The nine-game winning streak is Kansas City's longest winning streak since 2003 when they began the season 9-0. They have not won 10-straight games since 1994
Any $100 bettor would be up $879.36 if they had backed Kansas City in each of the previous nine games.
The Royals will open a three-game, interleague set with the New York Mets Friday. KC owns a 5-6 interleague record on the season.
Wade Davis is scheduled to get the start for the Royals.
