After two seasons in the postseason, the Kansas City Royals know how important it is to have a great defense on the field.

There are four words the Royals have been repeating on and on during the season: “Keep the line moving.” Dale Sveum has pushed these words into the players’ head, since he took the position as hitting coach in May of 2014, and for obvious reasons it has worked so far.

Second baseman Ben Zobrist said, “You can see how the guys here respond to pressure situations — how they look forward to that.” Zobrist came from Oakland via trade in late July. “The postseason. The bright lights. Guys love that here. They just relish that opportunity and thrive in that environment. I think that’s a big reason we’ve been successful and we’re able to come back in tough situations.”

The team has an amazing ability to keep their composure, be responsible, and disciplined. These are the qualities a team needs in order to win championships.

The Royals have embraced two incredible comebacks. On Monday they were losing to the Houston Astros 6-2 in the eighth inning, and were very close to be eliminated, when 11 men were sent against relievers Will Harris, Tony Sipp and Luke Gregerson and scored 5 runs to take the lead. In Game 4 of the Division Series, the Royals eliminated the Astros 9-6 two days later.

They will meet the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre for Games 3, 4 and 5.
