Royals, Reds hoping to end dreadful seasons on positive note

The season began poorly for both the Kansas City Royals and the Cincinnati Reds, and then it got worse.

The story is the same in both cities. Not enough hitting. Not enough pitching. Certainly not enough bullpen. Veterans that didn't produce, prospects that didn't develop as expected.

Now, two franchises that enjoyed major success only a few years ago -- the Royals winning the World Series in 2015, the Reds winning 97 games in 2012 -- can't wait for this season to be over. And, especially, for this September to be over.
