Kansas City extends winning streak to nine games

Aug 1, 2013 |
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.
