Playoff Preview: Royals return to playoffs


When they host Oakland in the AL wild-card game Tuesday night, the Royals will snap baseball’s longest streak without a playoff appearance. Every other team has played in October at least once since the Royals’ last trip to the postseason in 1985, including all four expansion teams who debuted since then. Thanks to recent turnarounds by historically troubled franchises like Milwaukee, Pittsburgh and Washington (née Montreal), the longest playoff-less streak now belongs to Toronto, which hasn’t made the postseason since winning the 1993 World Series.
