Royals Close in on Playoff Spot with 6-3 Win over White Sox

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com In the second inning of Thursday night’s game in Chicago, Royals fans were criticizing how their rock-solid ace was “unclutch.” In the fourth inning, some took to Twitter to discus the probability that the team collapses entirely in the last four days of the season. By the time the game was over, the entire fanbase was elated that their team was on the doorstep of the once inconceivable – the longest...
