Royals aim to go above .500; Blue Jays trying to get there

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Royals will try to climb above .500 for the first time this season when they take on the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday.

The Royals (36-36) are 10-2 in the past dozen games to reach .500 for the first time since April.

"We had a good road trip to California and we're just trying to keep that momentum going at home," said rookie right-hander Jake Junis, who got a no-decision Friday, giving up two runs in 6 1/3 innings.
