Series already in hand, KC goes for sweep in Seattle

When the Kansas City Royals took two of three games from the Detroit Tigers last week, including the finale played in Omaha, Neb., they won their first series since early April and snapped an 0-14-2 series skid.

Entering the finale of a three-game set Wednesday afternoon in Seattle, the Royals have already claimed that series, as well -- their first road series win this season.

The Royals won the series opener 6-4 Monday as Jorge Soler hit a go-ahead, two-run home run in the eighth inning. They cruised to a 9-0 victory Tuesday, with Whit Merrifield hitting two homers and driving in six runs, and Homer Bailey pitching 7 2/3 scoreless innings.
