An amazing run of play.
-- The Royals have been behind in only five of 63 innings played.
-- The Royals lead all teams with a .342 batting average. That's 26 points higher than the second placed team. The fact the second place team is the Astros is nobody's concern.
-- They have posted double-digit hit totals in five consecutive games.
-- The Royals starters have a 3.14 ERA. The Royals relievers have a 3.14 ERA.
-- The Royals team ERA is... 3.14!
