Royals seek to continue dominance of Twins

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- This season has not gone the way the Kansas City Royals and the Minnesota Twins wanted or expected.

The 2015 World Series champion Royals are on the cusp of being mathematically eliminated from the American League wild card. Their tragic number is one with six games left. Kansas City still needs three victories to assure a winning season.

The young Twins were a surprise in 2015, finishing above .500 and in second place in the AL Central. Instead of taking a step forward, the Twins lost their 100th game on Sunday, falling 4-3 to the Seattle Mariners. It is just the Twins' second 100-loss season since moving to Minnesota in 1961. The other was 1983.
