Royals continue on upward track, beating Indians 9-4 to tie for first place

The victory was Kansas City’s ninth straight at Kauffman Stadium, which only underscored the preposterous nature of the last 20 days. In the span of less than three weeks, the Royals won six straight at Kauffman Stadium — their first 6-0 home stand since 1988 — lost eight straight during a mind-numbing road trip, and then clipped off another five straight victories, including three back at home over the Indians.

Royals back in their comfort zone, beat Indians 2-1

Even as the Royals were building toward championships over the past few seasons did they win at home like this. The Royals’ 2-1 triumph over the Indians on Monday before 31,269 at Kauffman Stadium kept their good going on home soil. That’s 20 victories in 27 games, a .741 clip. Last year they won 63 percent of their home games.
