Fans are tuning in for Royals' playoff push


KANSAS CITY -- The Royals' seventh straight win Sunday was the team's highest-rated game telecast this season.

The 7-4 triumph over the Giants, broadcast on FOX Sports Kansas City, generated a 10.1 household in the Kansas City market, per Nielsen.

Additionally, the game trumped the final round of the PGA Championship (7.2).

It marked the completion of a three-game sweep of San Francisco, and all three games were the highest-rated program in Kansas City that day.
