The Kansas City Royals have won seven games in a row to jump from 29-32 to tie the Tigers with 36 wins after their 6-3 victory over the White Sox on Sunday.

The notoriously light-hitting Royals launched two homers -- a two-run blast to center by Eric Hosmer and a three-run bomb to right by Salvador Perez -- and leaned on a strong performance by wild animal James Shields.
