On June 16 2005 — With a 9 – 6 victory over the Dodgers, Kansas City becomes the first major league team to record three-game sweeps over the Dodgers and Yankees in one regular season. The Angels and Mariners also swept the Yankees and Dodgers in one season since interleague play began in 1997, but both were not three-game sweeps. At this point, Kansas City has posted an 11-4 record since Buddy Bell took over as manager on May 31st.
