Heading into the Royals series with the Braves last Friday, I noted how well the Royals had been doing the last week.
It took the Royals nearly 70 games to win back-to-back series. But they had won two out of three against the Astros and Reds.
Swept by the Braves and down 0-1 to the Nationals.
So what happened?
The usual, I suppose. The Royals have always (it seems) been inconsistent.
Meanwhile, the Nationals won their first game in their last seven tries so that's not much help.
They'll play two more against the Nationals (and one against Stephen Strasburg). So if they're going to show up, it should be Wednesday.
