The most entertaining team in the majors right now has to be the Kansas City Royals. Win or lose, they always seem to put on a show. On Monday they blew an eight-run lead to top the Twins 9-8. On Tuesday, the Royals scored 12 runs in the sixth inning to beat Minnesota 14-7. Their sixth-inning performance broke a team record. The Royals scored 11 in one inning three other times–the last time was in 1995 against the Brewers. Ken Harvey had the best night of his short major league career, going 4-5 and driving in five runs. He had two hits and three RBI’s in the sixth inning alone. It was the second straight night that a Royal drove in five—Mike Sweeney accomplished the feat on Tuesday. Sweeney and Raul Ibanez drove in two apiece on Tuesday. Jeremy Affeldt wasn’t a part of the decision, despite allowing just one run. He was pulled in the fifth inning after 99 pitches. Wilson, who allowed two runs in the sixth and was the benefactor of the offense’s explosion a half-inning later, improved to 3-0 on the season. The pitching staff allowed nine walks on Tuesday. The win moved Kansas City to within two games of the Twins in the American League Central.
