Red-hot Royals vie for sweep of Blue Jays

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- After ending April with nine consecutive defeats and an American League worst record of 10-20 on May 7, postseason play was only a mirage for the Kansas City Royals.

That is no longer the case. Kansas City is an American League-best 15-6 in June.

The Royals are going for their 12th victory in 14 games Sunday when they try to sweep the Toronto Blue Jays. The recent surge has moved Kansas City (37-36) above .500 for the first time this year and thinking the big picture, which includes October play.
