It has not been a good season for the Kansas City Royals.
Aside from revealing some pretty amazing City Connect uniforms, nothing has really gone their way.
They own the worst record in all of baseball and sit 12.5 games behind the Minnesota Twins in the American League Central division.
They’ve dug themselves a significant hole that’s going to be incredibly tough to pull themselves out of.
But perhaps they took a few baby steps with their 7-5 win last night over the Baltimore Orioles.
The Royals don’t have any realistic hope of turning things around this season but Alec Lewis, one of the team’s beat writers, pointed out on Twitter that this is the first time the Royals have won back-to-back games since May 17.
Tonight marked the Royals’ first back-to-back win since May 17.

Slow And Steady
Any win is an important win.
The Royals likely aren’t going anywhere, but at least they’ve strung together a couple of wins.
That should feel good for them, considering where they are in the standings and how rough things have been for them.
It’s better than nothing.
A win is a win.
The Royals do at least have a little more talent on their roster than last year.
Not much, but some.
And you could say that maybe they’re taking some baby steps.
It’s better than no progress at all.
They still, however, have a record of 19-37.
The Cincinnati Reds had held the worst record in baseball after a horrendous start.
The Royals have since fallen behind them.
Again, there’s little chance that this team is going anywhere.
They can’t even lay claim to the I-70 series, a series in which their Missouri rivals, the St. Louis Cardinals, have dominated.
But at least they’ve pulled off a few wins here recently.
