Royals fall to Astros 5-2 in opener of AL Division Series

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Royals were in this situation last year, dropping the World Series opener to San Francisco before responding with victories in the next two games.

They aren't shaken by a 5-2 loss to the Houston Astros in Game 1 of their AL Division Series.

"It's a five-game series," manager Ned Yost said Thursday night. "It's not a death sentence to lose Game 1."
