Royals Vs. Twins: Kansas City, Minnesota To Play Double-Header On Saturday

After rain washed out play in Kansas City on Friday night, the Kansas City Royals and Minnesota Twins will begin their three-game weekend series with a double-header on Saturday evening at Kauffman Stadium.

The Royals didn't need the unscheduled day off in the midst of a three-game winning streak which they will try to extend in the first game with Will Smith (4-6, 5.55 ERA) slated to start on the mound. The left hander will try to snap personal two-game losing streak when he faces the Twins.

Minnesota will start game one with right-hander Cole De Vries (3-5, 4.68 ERA) who is coming off of a strong start when he gave up three hits and two runs to the Texas Rangers in his last outing.

In the nightcap, right-hander Luke Hochevar (7-12, 4.93 ERA) will start for Kansas City against Minnesota's Liam Hendriks (0-7, 6.02 ERA). The 23-year-old Hendriks has yet to win a game for the Twins in his ten starts this season.

Game one is scheduled to start at 3:05 p.m. CT with the second game starting about thirty minutes after game one.
