The Kansas City Royals begin a three-game home series with the Oakland Athletics Tuesday night and starter Jeremy Guthrie is looking to build on his last outing.
This will be Guthrie's fifth start as a Royal. He registered his first win since arriving in Kansas City against the White Sox last Wednesday, pitching eight scoreless innings, striking out six and giving up just five hits.
Rookie Jarrod Parker will be on the mound for Oakland. He has lost his last two starts.
The first pitch is scheduled for 8:10 p.m. ET at Kauffman Stadium. It can be seen on Fox Sports Kansas City.
