Royals must rediscover momentum, moxie and magic

If nothing else, these Royals have proved themselves to be fantastically resilient. And in the list of holes they’ve played themselves out of, a 7-1 loss to the Giants in the first game of the World Series on Tuesday would not even earn a medal. But the Royals shouldn’t kid themselves either.
