Streaking Royals look to stay hot, face Reds

The suddenly hot Kansas City Royals have won their last four games, all against teams currently in first place in their respective divisions.

This season has not been an easy road as the Royals' first 17 games were against teams that owned records of .500 or better, entering play Monday. On Tuesday, they'll get their first sub-.500 opponent when they visit Great American Ball Park to take on the Cincinnati Reds in the opener of a two-game series.

Their four-game winning streak began against the Chicago Cubs, who entered play Monday with the best record in the majors. The last three wins have come against the Minnesota Twins, who had the best record in the American League until they faced the Royals.
