RECENT TRENDS
NEWS

Covers Preview - With its starting rotation in excellent form, Kansas City hopes the bullpen and bats continue to follow suit as the Royals try to make it two straight when they visit the Houston Astros on Wednesday in the second contest of a three-game series. Kansas City is last in the major leagues with 36 runs and has hit only two homers, but its starters have nine quality starts in the first 12 games this season after Yordano Ventura recorded his first major league victory in Tuesday's 4-2 win.
