Astros, Royals set for Game 5 of ALDS

 The top-seeded Royals will try to carry over momentum from a late-inning comeback in Game 4 in their series finale against the Astros on Tuesday in Kansas City.

The Royals will ask Johnny Cueto to fulfill the role of shutdown ace in a deciding game they envisioned after they traded away three top prospects for him before this year's non-waiver trade deadline. The former Reds pitcher is 0-2 with a 5.52 ERA in four career playoff starts, though, and didn't exactly carry Kansas City into the postseason after the deal with Cincinnati was made.

The Astros will try to rebound from a late collapse in Game 4 fueled by a pivotal error from shortstop Carlos Correa. The rookie mishandled a deflected grounder that led to five Royals runs in their 9-6 win.
