Hosmer's 5 hits, slam help Royals top Tigers, win 8th in row

DETROIT (AP) The Kansas City Royals don't play the Detroit Tigers again until September.

That might be the one thing that keeps them from making a postseason run.

The Royals extended their winning streak to eight games with a 16-2 rout of the Tigers on Wednesday night. Five of the eight wins have come against the Tigers, who they have outscored 40-10 in the last four games, including a 16-4 win on July 20.
