Royals-Twins Preview

(AP) -- Given that they have the AL's second-best home record, the Central-champion Kansas City Royals insist they're going hard after home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

A day after eliminating the Minnesota Twins from playoff contention, the visiting Royals can lock up the league's best record Sunday by closing out the regular season on a five-game winning streak.

Kansas City (94-67) kept the pressure on East-champ Toronto on Saturday by continuing its late surge with a 5-1 victory at Target Field. The Blue Jays couldn't keep pace later in the evening, falling one game behind Royals in the chase for home-field advantage in the postseason.
