KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Royals knew they’d face a much taller task this weekend against the Houston Astros than they had during their recent four-series win streak. The Astros have World Series aspirations and just might finish the regular season with the best record in baseball.

The Royals simply didn’t have the firepower and depth to matchup with arguably the AL’s best, and it showed in the Astros’ three-game sweep.

The Astros smacked Royals pitching for 16 hits in the series finale as the Royals lost 12-3 in front of an announced 17,205 on Sunday afternoon at Kauffman Stadium. The Astros, who scored 15 runs or more twice last week against Seattle and Oakland, hit three home runs on top of three other extra-base hits Sunday.
