As we look at what's next for the week ahead, the Royals are in a familiar place -- first place, to be precise -- and can increase their lead in the AL Central. Meanwhile, the Red Sox and Orioles continue their series for AL East supremacy.
For quite a while, Matt Harvey has searched for the answers that could reverse his uncharacteristically difficult start to the season. He seemed to find them on Monday, allowing just two hits and one walk with six strikeouts over seven shutout innings against the White Sox.
In his latest display of hitting proficiency, Daniel Murphy collected three hits -- including a solo homer in the fourth and the go-ahead two-run single in the eighth -- to catapult the Nationals to a 4-3 victory Monday night at Citizens Bank Park.
Over the first 4 1/2 innings at Angel Stadium, Jhoulys Chacin and Justin Verlander retired all 27 batters they faced. After the Los Angeles Angels finally cracked Verlander, Chacin kept pushing all the way to a breakthrough victory for his new team. Chacin threw a four-hitter, and Cliff Pennington's tiebreaking RBI single during a five-run eighth propelled the Angels to a 5-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Monday night.

Late-inning rallies are becoming the trademark for the Kansas City Royals. Eric Hosmer hit a three-run homer after Lorenzo Cain drove in the go-ahead run in a four-run eighth inning and the Royals defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 6-2 on Monday night.
