Royals back in playoffs with stingy, rebuilt bullpen

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) By the time the Kansas City Royals had run roughshod through the American League playoffs last year, everyone in baseball knew exactly what H-D-H meant.

Herrera, Davis, Holland. The big three relievers at the back of their bullpen.

With the dominance of Kelvin Herrera in the seventh inning, Wade Davis in the eighth and Greg Holland closing out, the Royals effectively turned every game into a six-inning sprint. If they had the lead by then, they were almost assured of having it at the final out, and that was a big reason why they advanced to Game 7 of the World Series.
