Covers Preview - After failing in their last two bids for a series sweep, the Kansas City Royals likely are feeling better about their chances to bring out the brooms on Wednesday afternoon as they play the finale of their set versus the host Minnesota Twins. Kansas City was unable to close the deal against both Boston and the Chicago White Sox in its previous two series but has won a franchise-record eight in a row versus major league-worst Minnesota.
