KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Milwaukee Brewers, streaking in one direction, and the Kansas City Royals, going another, will meet Wednesday to conclude a two-game mini interleague series at Kauffman Stadium.
The Brewers beat the Royals 5-2 on Tuesday night for their seventh straight victory. The last time Milwaukee has won eight in a row was June 28 through July 5, 2015.
On the flip side, the Royals have lost 16 of their first 21 games to begin the season. They are a pitiful 1-8 at home and the Tuesday defeat was the opener of a seven-game homestand. Their lone home victory was a 10-0 tally on April 9 against the Seattle Mariners.
