Ned Yost takes a more even-keeled approach as Royals surge to first in AL Central

Yost's players praise him for an even-handed approach. When the Royals lost four straight coming out of the All-Star break, the players, not Yost, called a meeting. Since then the Royals have been the hottest team in baseball, winning 19 of 24 to make up eight games on the Detroit Tigers and take over first place in the American League Central.
