The Royals and Cardinals kick off their four-game home/home tilt with a knock-down drag-out pillow fight between righties Carlos Martinez and Ian Kennedy. The stakes are highish, and neither man will bend to another man’s will.
Or Ian Kennedy will show up and do his single-inning implosion thingy.
I guess there’s some intrastate pride on the line here too.
