Royals-Rockies Preview

(AP) -- If the Kansas City Royals are to continue their surge, they likely must find a way to end Jorge De La Rosa's current success at Coors Field.

Looking for a fourth consecutive victory, the AL Central-leading Royals try to prevent the Colorado Rockies' left-hander from winning his sixth straight home start Wednesday night.

Omar Infante had four hits with four RBIs and James Shields threw six solid innings as Kansas City (70-55) won for the 22nd time in 27 games, 7-4 at Colorado on Tuesday. Owners of a two-game lead over second-place Detroit, the Royals have won 11 of 13 on the road during stretch and extended their interleague winning streak to seven games.
