Felipe Paulino will start the Royal's homestand against Oakland as arguably the team's strongest pitcher of late, throwing three shutouts in his last five starts, dropping his ERA to 2.03 entering Friday. In his last start, Paulino gave up three runs in 5 2/3 innings of work, but got the win against Baltimore.

During their last meeting in early April, Kansas City took two of three from the A's. The Royals could use a boost against the struggling A's - Oakland is 2-8 in their last ten games and in last place in the AL West - before playing the struggling Twins next week, providing a chance for the club to pull towards .500 before Interleague play resumes.

Location: Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri

TV: Fox Sports KC

Radio: KCSP 610
