Royals Vs. Cardinals: Saturday's Starting Lineups Have Been Announced

The Kansas City Royals were able to squeak out a 3-2 victory from the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday as they try and one-up their interstate rivals. (Random, is it me or is it weird that both kansas City and St. Louis technically reside in two states? Just me? Okay.) Bruce Chen will try to keep things rolling for the Royals on the mound while Joe Kelly gets the start for the Cardinals.

The Royals made no changes in the field, but the Cardinals have made a few. Shane Robinson will start at center, Tyler Greene will start at second, and Allen Craig will move to first base.
