September 2015 on paper looks to be the make-or-break month for the KC Royals.
This year, the MLB regular season carries over into October, where the Royals end the season finishing up a road series in Chicago and then with three games in Minnesota.
So every month but April for the Royals ends on the road.
September starts out for the Royals with a nine-game homestand, beginning with Detroit (September 1-3). They then welcome the Chicago White Sox to town for Labor Day weekend (September 4-6), before Minnesota celebrates Labor Day at Kauffman Stadium (September 7-9).
After a much needed off day, the Royals head out on the road for their first and only trip to Baltimore: September 11-13, where the teams will honor those victims of the 9/11 attacks.
From Baltimore, the Royals head to Cleveland (September 14-17) and then Detroit (September 18-20) to finish out the ten game road trip.
After enjoying their Monday off, the Royals welcome Seattle to the K for three games, before ending their home slate of games against the Indians (September 25-27).
Before heading out on the road to finish the regular season, the Royals do have an off day (September 28th).
There are zero Interleague Play games for the Royals over the final month of the season. However, this is how their Interleague schedule broke down (20 games against the National League Central):
- 4 vs Cincinnati (2/2)
- 6 vs St. Louis (3/3)
- 4 vs Milwaukee (2/2)
- 3 vs Cubs
- 3 vs Pittsburgh
