Royal revelry: KC celebrates after clinching second straight ALCS berth (PHOTOS)

Published Oct. 15, 2015 1:36 a.m. ET

For the second year in a row, the Kansas City Royals will battle it out for the American League pennant.

After taking down the upstart Houston Astros 7-2 on Wednesday night thanks to a sterling effort from Johnny Cueto, the Royals punched their ticket to an ALCS date with the Toronto Blue Jays.

After the game, which was a hard fought battle until Kendrys Morales' booming three-run homer in the eighth inning put an exclamation mark on the night, they let loose with some celebrating. Mind you, it wasn't necessarily the same type of all-out celebration reserved for the clinching of a postseason spot (or a pennant or a World Series), but it was still worthy of Tweeting...which many folks did, including FOX Sports Kansas City and the team's official Twitter page.

There was also a lot of jumping, family fun and other forms of celebration as well:

Pitcher Jeremy Guthrie had complimentary things to say about the Astros, as he shared on Twitter: 

As for the impending matchup with the Blue Jays, Andy McCulloch of the Kansas City Star seems to be looking forward to it: 

The Royals now have two days to prepare for those high-flying Jays, who will come to Kauffman Stadium on Friday for ALCS Game 1.
