Royals look for rare series win against Blue Jays

The Kansas City Royals will enter the final game of a four-game series against the visiting Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday with a chance to do something they haven't done in four seasons.

If Kansas City wins the game, the Royals will claim their first series win against the Blue Jays since 2017.

It's still a possibility after Salvador Perez's walk-off home run in the seventh inning of the second game of a doubleheader Saturday. The Royals claimed the win 3-2 after the Blue Jays won the first game of the doubleheader 5-1 behind a strong starting effort by Steven Matz.
