Royals rise above .500, try to stay there against Tigers

DETROIT -- While the Detroit Tigers continue their playoff push, the defending World Series champion Kansas City Royals find themselves battling to finish above .500.

Kansas City reminded Detroit and everybody else on Saturday that the Royals are, after all, the defending World Series champions. They scored five times in the ninth inning to turn a 4-2 deficit into a 7-4 win that brought them back above break-even at 78-77.

"For me, it's extremely important," Royals manager Ned Yost said Saturday about moving above .500. "This group has made history the last couple years and we still have a chance to do it.
