Kansas City Royals Riding Strong Momentum After Sweep Of ChiSox

The Kansas City Royals are filled with young, dynamic potential through the Major League club and down through the farm system. From Mike Moustakas, Eric Hosmer and company at the ML level to Wil Myers and Bubba Starling in prep mode, the team has a number of sluggers available. The pitching pipeline has also been developed and names like Jake Odorizzi and Kyle Zimmer will likely have a long-term home in KC soon enough. But recently that potential has turned into production the way Royals fans have hoped for.

The Royals are currently mowing through opponents and just swept the Chicago White Sox after taking two of three from the Oakland Athletics. Now they head out on an East Coast trip with more confidence than ever in 2012, but Royals manager said the team isn't there just yet.

"We're just trying to get back on track, finish the season off strong," Yost said. "That's our goal, and we're doing OK at it right now. We have a long way to go, still have a long road ahead of us. We've got to continue to stay focused on it, playing good, consistent baseball."

Will Smith takes the mound on Monday against the Rays in the first of three games against the team. Then the Royals move on to face the Boston Red Sox for another four. If they can hold up and take four of seven (or better), Royals fans will have a lot of hope heading into the home stretch for further success in 2013.
