Friday Thread: Twins at Royals

First-place Minnesota comes to town.

MLB: Chicago Cubs at Kansas City Royals Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Friday night baseball! The Royals are off a fantastic night, a 13-2 drubbing of the Chicago Cubs, to end a week-long losing streak. Tonight, they’ll look to make it two in a row, but the challenge will be bigger. First-place Minnesota comes to town for the start of a three-game series.

This is a pitching matchup that the Royals would appear to have the upper hand in, as they’ll throw Jake Junis against Minnesota’s Devin Smeltzer, who has struggled mightily this year thus far. First pitch is at 7:15 pm.
