The Minnesota Twins and the Kansas City Royals will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Royals Stadium.

The Twins will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Phil Hughes in this game. Hughes has a 3-1 record and a 4.71 ERA this season.

The Royals will counter Hughes with Jason Hammel. Right hander Hammel has a 5.30 ERA to go along with a 0-2 record this season.

Hughes allowed two runs and six hits in six innings of a 3-2 victory at Texas on Monday and also has defeated Detroit and the Chicago White Sox on the road this season. The 30-year-old Californian, who is 10-21 with a 5.53 ERA in 42 April starts, has recorded only 13 strikeouts in 21 innings this season. Hughes is 7-5 with a 4.91 ERA in 14 games (13 starts) versus Kansas City, including 4-3, 5.49 in seven turns at Kauffman Stadium.

Hammel yielded three runs, four hits and three walks in three innings of a 5-2 loss at Texas on Sunday after his only quality start of the season versus San Francisco on April 18, when he settled for a no-decision after permitting one run in six frames of a 2-1 loss. It is an uncharacteristically slow start for the 34-year-old South Carolina native, who is 21-12 with a 3.87 ERA in 48 April appearances (45 starts). Hammel is 2-1 with a 3.98 ERA in eight games (seven starts) versus Minnesota.

Oddsmakers currently have the Royals listed as 121-moneyline favorites versus the Twins, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

Minnesota‘s Joe Mauer is a bona fide thorn in the side of the Royals and he’ll try to inflict more damage when the Twins visit Kansas City on Saturday for the middle contest of their three-game series. Mauer’s tiebreaking two-run double in the eighth inning gave Minnesota a 6-4 victory on Friday, giving him a .318 average with 39 doubles and 114 RBIs in 194 games versus the Royals, who have lost eight in a row.

The Twins (11-11), who were 7-15 after 22 games last season, have won five straight against Kansas City – their longest winning streak versus the Royals since 2011. The red-hot Miguel Sano is 8-for-12 with two home runs and six RBIs in his last three games after belting a two-run shot and preceeding Mauer’s hit with a two-run double of his own. Kansas City, which was swept in a three-game series by Minnesota to start the season and outscored 21-5 in the process, is last in the majors with 58 runs and also has the worst average with runners in scoring position at .159. The Twins’ Phil Hughes is 3-0 with a 3.57 ERA in three road starts this season and opposes Jason Hammel, who still is looking for his first victory in a Royals uniform.
