So what's happening? Our guess is that Manager Terry Francona told the team they'd have to sleep with Drew Barrymore if they lost a game.
That'd make any team -- even the Royals -- win 12 straight.
Elsewhere around the leauge:
-Ken Griffey just flashed back to 1993 and hit a homerun for his fourth-straight game.
-Minnesota has won 7 straight, but can't pick up ground on the equally hot Detroit
-And the Atlanta Braves are behind the Florida Marlis. Yeah, strange.
