The Royals snapped a four-game losing streak and provided a bucket-list afternoon for the thousands of Kansas City partisans who descended onto the North Side.

The losing streak reached four games at 3:51 p.m. local time, and 15 minutes later the leaders of the Royals stood at their lockers to address the latest defeat. Swept for the first time this season, they did not hide from the reality after a 4-2 loss to the Yankees, and they did not waver in their belief in the briefness of this skid, a stretch of baseball marked by suspect pitching and absent offense.

With 5-1 loss to Yankees, Royals enter first losing streak of season

For two months, the Royals denied the existence of losing streaks, ceasing every temporary, two-game skid with another onslaught of winning. They bent to reality on Tuesday night in the Bronx, dropping their third consecutive game for the first time in 2015, this one a 5-1 loss to the New York Yankees. Activated from the disabled list on Tuesday afternoon, Kansas City starter Jason Vargas allowed two runs in four innings. Joe Blanton, his replacement, gave up three in the fifth.
