No cruise control for Matheny's Royals vs. Cardinals

If you want to live on the edge, try suggesting to Kansas City Royals manager Mike Matheny that this final week of the 2020 regular season is meaningless, other than evaluating talent for the years to come.

The Royals will try to defeat the St. Louis Cardinals for the second straight night Tuesday, after claiming a 4-1 victory in the opener of a three-game series Monday night at Kauffman Stadium. Matheny feels that his team has plenty to play for this season.

"We've had plenty of opportunities for these guys to come in and complain, and we haven't seen any of it," he said Monday afternoon.
