ICYMI: Royals Magical Mystery Tour Continues--One Game from World Series

The Kansas City Royals are 7-0 in the American League Playoffs right now.

Yes, at the risk of jinxing their crazy ride, they've won seven straight games. And sometimes with some crazy finishes, sometimes with amazing plays and sometimes just by plain luck.

Tuesday night, the Royals beat the Baltimore Orioles 2-1 to take a 3-0 lead in the best-of-7 American League Championship Series.

They did it in large part with their pitching and defense Tuesday. Mike Moustakas made a crazy, lunging, diving over the dugout railings catch and Jerermy Guthrie along with 4 relievers combined to hold the Baltimore Bats in check.

Oddly, the winning run came on a 6th inning sacrifice fly by Billy Butler.

K.C will trot out Jason Vargas to try and clinch their World Series berth since the early 1980's, which ironically is roughly the last time the team was in the playoffs...

That game kicks off Wednesday afternoon...

Here are your Tuesday night highlights...
