Volquez, Royals offense need to get back on track tonight at Chicago

Though the Kansas City Royals proved last season they can succeed in the playoffs without home-field advantage, they sure wouldn't mind having it this year. That's in danger of slipping away, however, due to a September swoon and the Toronto Blue Jays' stellar second half. The slumping Royals enter Wednesday night's road test with the Chicago White Sox 1 1/2 games behind Toronto...

With two outs in the eighth inning, the third straight sellout crowd at Kauffman Stadium came to it’s feet. Why? They were applauding Edinson Volquez and his nearly eight strong innings.
