5. Kansas City Royals (4-2)

The Royals are winning in weird ways, such as a player going first-to-third on a passed ball Sunday, but they’ll need to pitch well to sustain with their offense. High-risk free agent pitcher Ian Kennedy made a nice Royals debut, striking out seven in 6 2/3 shutout innings Saturday.
