What four runs and a new lineup mean for Royals

When the Royals score four runs or more, they’re 17-5. The general interpretation of this number is that with this pitching staff, you don’t need a ton of runs to win — but you need some. You might credit the new lineup: This one was suggested by the stat guys the Royals employ. Apparently, Ned Yost made a minor tweak to what they gave him, but then went with Alex Gordon leading off, Eric Hosmer hitting second, Salvador Perez in the third spot, Billy Butler hitting fourth, Mike Moustakas fifth followed by Lorenzo Cain, David Lough, Chris Getz and Alcides Escobar.
