The last time the Kansas City Royals were in the World Series they lost to the San Francisco Giants in seven games. That was last season and previously the team wasn’t competing for the greatest achievement in baseball since their victory in 1985. That season they defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games and now will have the chance to win the second title in their history. To get their second title the Royals will need to knock off the National League champion New York Mets.
The Royals got where they are this year by winning the American League Central with a 95-67 record. That mark set them apart from the second place Minnesota Twins by 12 games and the team was led throughout the season by a solid mix of pitching, defense, and offense. Offensively the Royals had six players hit at least 13 home runs including three (Kendrys Morales 22, Mike Moustakas 22, and Salvador Perez 21) with more than 20. The 2014 ALCS Most Valuable Player Lorenzo Cain also played well for the Royals throughout the season hitting .307 with 16 home runs and 28 stolen bases.
The pitching staff for the Royals didn’t have the best ERA of those teams that qualified for the postseason this year but they did have enough talent to get this far. Youngster Yordano Ventura pitches with an attitude and tied for the team lead with 13 wins. Edinson Volquez also added 13 victories with a 3.55 ERA which was best on the staff for any pitcher that had enough innings to qualify for the ERA title. At the end of the season the Royals ninth inning guy was Wade Davis. Davis, a former starter, took over for Greg Holland after he was injured and has not looked back since.
