The Kansas City Royals ended the regular season Sunday with a record of 95-67, their best since 1980. The Royals also have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, with a 6-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins. The win concluded one of the best seasons for the Royals in franchise history. The stage has been set for the defense of the American League pennant.
