Royals vs. Twins, Game 158 Game Thread

Still technically in the Wild Card hunt.

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

It is technically correct to say that the Royals are still in playoff contention.

That's the best kind of correct.

After a late finish last night, the Royals are 80-77 and mostly playing to finish above .500. Though they are technically still in the race, they have to win every game left. Others teams must also lose a bunch for things to happen, and Baltimore has to lose every game. Honestly, I'm not super up-to-date on the playoff scenarios because multiple tie Wild Cards scares me.
