Royals-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- The Kansas City Royals are still in first place, though they now have some unexpected company, while the Chicago Cubs have lost some ground.

Both clubs will be looking to jump-start slumping offenses in Friday's series opener at Wrigley Field.

Kansas City (28-18) has dropped a season-worst four straight while totaling five runs. The Royals still rank second in baseball in runs per game, though they had been averaging 5.0 prior to that stretch.
