The fans at Royals Stadium will be treated to a game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Kansas City Royals when they take their seats on Saturday.

Marco Estrada will be the starting pitcher for the Blue Jays on this day. Right hander Estrada is 4-5 this season with a 4.98 ERA.

Starting this game for the Royals will be Jason Vargas. The left hander has a 2.27 ERA to go along with a 10-3 record this season.

Estrada is enduring a four-start winless streak and wasn’t particularly sharp in any of those outings, during which he piled up a 0-3 record with a 12.68 ERA. The California native managed to escape without a decision at Texas on Monday despite allowing six runs on seven hits and four walks in 3 2/3 innings. Estrada is seeing for the Royals for the first time since the 2015 American League Championship Series, when he went 1-1 in a pair of starts, including a win in Game 5 that kept the series alive for Toronto.

Vargas is enjoying a streak of five wins in as many starts and is tied with Los Angeles Dodgers’ ace Clayton Kershaw for the major-league lead in wins. The Californian, who attended Long Beach State with Estrada, has allowed a total of six runs in his last four outings and is coming off a win over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday. Vargas missed the 2015 ALCS following elbow surgery and has not faced Toronto since a win on May 30, 2014.

Oddsmakers currently have the Blue Jays listed as 110-moneyline favorites versus the Royals, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The Kansas City Royals and the Toronto Blue Jays both came into the season with playoff aspirations before rough starts pushed them back in the standings, and both are trying to make their way forward again. The Royals have the benefit of owning the hottest pitcher in the league, and Jason Vargas will take the mound when they host the Blue Jays in the second of a three-game set on Saturday.

Kansas City (36-36) reached .500 for the first time since it was 7-7 on April 19 and pushed Toronto (35-38) one game further away with a 5-4 win in the series opener on Friday. The Royals are winners of 10 of their last 12 games and won in dramatic fashion on Friday, when Whit Merrifield delivered a walk-off, two-run double to cap a four-run ninth inning. The Blue Jays began their seven-game road trip strong with wins in two of the first three at Texas but dropped an 11-4 decision on Thursday with a chance to move to .500 and fell in excruciating fashion on Friday. Toronto will try to bounce back against Vargas, while the Royals counter with right-hander Marco Estrada.

Kansas City was a 5-4 winner in its last match on the road against the Blue Jays. They won as +125 underdogs, while the total score of 9 made winners of UNDER bettors.

The Blue Jays were a 5-4 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Royals. That made winners of bettors who got Kansas City at 125 on the moneyline, while the total score (9) was good news for UNDER bettors.
