KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Royals are the hottest team in Major League Baseball.

And they have earned that title.

On Wednesday, the Royals won, 11-2, over the Houston Astros at Kauffman Stadium. KC improved to 8-4 and stretched its winning streak to six games.

Royals first baseman Vinnie Pasquantino led the charge. Pasquantino, who was mired in an early-season slump, broke out in a big way. He finished 3 for 3 with a career-high five RBIs in the game.

In the third inning, Pasquantino hit a two-run double to give the Royals an early lead. He did one better in his next at-bat. Pasquantino hit his first home run of the 2024 campaign.

The Royals fed off his production. KC scored seven runs in the third inning. Later, the Royals added three more runs in the game.


The Astros fell to 4-9 this season. Houston registered two runs against Royals starter Seth Lugo. They finished 2 for 12 with runners in scoring position.
