The National League Central division was a top-heavy division last season, and it will see little change this year.
Kansas City overcame two late A’s runs by pushing across the deciding 13th run of the game in the ninth.
Last season, Johnny Cueto allowed just one home run in all of June — 15 all season. A trio of home runs surrendered to the Kansas City Royals Wednesday afternoon helped him eclipse that season mark just 14 days into June.
Since the 2013 emergence of the Kansas City Royals, the AL Central has been among the most entertaining division in Major League Baseball.
