Having AL's best record hasn't produced World Series berth much lately

With six games remaining in the regular season and the American League's postseason home-field advantage yet to be determined, every game is big for the Kansas City Royals. That said, the club with the AL's best mark has made it to the World Series only once in the last five seasons.

The Royals are coming off a loss across town to the Chicago Cubs last night. An encouraging note as they move to the South Side of Chicago for three games: They've dominated the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field of late.

Johnny Cueto, who gets the start in the series opener tonight, looks to be getting back on track just in time for the playoffs.

It would be no surprise if designated hitter Kendrys Morales got a hit or two in each game against the White Sox. Lorenzo Cain, too, for that matter.
