The Kansas City Royals  defeated the Houston Astros 7-2 in game five of the ALDS. The Royals will now face the Toronto  Blue Jays in the ALCS.

In a series where the Royals always had their backs against the wall they prevailed and are now playing in their second straight ALCS.

Johnny Cueto went eight innings giving up two hits and two runs. The two runs came on a homerun early in the game. However, aside from the one slip-up he had early in Cueto seemed unhittable. Johnny retired the last 19 batters he faced.

Hosmer, Rios, and Zobrist all contributed to the Royals runs but the deciding factor came in the evening when Kendrys Morales blasted a three run homerun making it a 7-2 game.

From their it was smooth sailing and the Royals defeated the Astros 7-2
