After acing 'hard' part of the schedule, Royals now must handle the cupcakes

Royals End Streak, Blasted by A’s 11-3

In the midst of a career year Cain asks: 'What's not to smile about?'

Take the fifth -- the one inning Royals fans can't afford to miss

Team Meeting Sparks Club, Royals Beat Sox 7-1

  Alert the presses: The Kansas City Royals scored seven runs tonight. Without Eric Hosmer (hand contusion) and Lorenzo Cain (rest) I was afraid that that would be a tall task for Kansas City.
