Race for the 2nd AL wild card

ESPN Stats and Information's Mark Simon examines the wild-card chances for the Rays, Twins, Angels, Orioles, Royals and Mariners.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

The Royals' weekend teetered on the brink of disaster but after a 14-6 romp over the White Sox on Sunday, Kansas City heads for O'Hare International Airport in a much cheerier mood than they might have. Whit Merrifield drove in five runs and finished a double shy of the cycle to lead KC's 16-hit attack. The Royals took two of three in Chicago, taking Saturday's game 5-4 when Melky Cabrera hit a clutch two-run homer as KC snapped a five-game skid. Ned Yost hoped the comeback might spark his club and if Sunday's outburst was any evidence, it has. Now back over the .500 mark, the Royals head for Oakland to play the A's.
