After lousy start, Royals slowly climb into contention

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Well, look at the Royals now.

After a 10-20 start, some looked ahead to trades and retooling. Following Salvador Perez's go-ahead grand slam in the eighth inning Wednesday night boosted Kansas City to a 6-4 victory over Boston, the Royals are 35-36 and just 3 1/2 games back of AL Central-leading Minnesota.

"We're playing like we know we can and we're moving in the right direction," second baseman Whit Merrifield said, "and hopefully we can keep that up and keep making progress."
