It just seems the Royals wouldn’t have it any other way. And now they’re headed to the American League Championship Series.
Kansas City defeated the Houston Astros Wednesday to win the decisive game in their best-of-five series.
Down in a two-run hole, the Royals rallied in a three-run fifth inning to go up 4-2 and take a lead they’d never give back.
The Toronto Blue Jays, who beat the Texas Rangers to advance Wednesday, are next up for Kansas City.
The story of the night: Royals starting pitcher Johnny Cueto.
