The Minnesota Twins and the Kansas City Royals will meet on the field at Kauffman Stadium on Friday in a battle of division rivals.

The Twins will trot Ervin Santana out to the mound in this one. Right hander Santana has a 10-4 record and a 2.80 ERA this season.

The Royals will counter Santana with Jason Vargas. Left hander Vargas has a 2.29 ERA to go along with a 11-3 record this season.

Santana struck out seven and worked around nine hits over six innings to record his second straight win on Sunday with a 4-0 victory at Cleveland. “He really cranked it up (his fastball) pretty good a couple of times. And he’s able to maintain his poise in rough waters,” manager Paul Molitor told reporters. The strong outing by the 34-year-old Dominican came on the heels of two sub-par performances, during which he surrendered four homers, 11 runs and 19 hits while splitting a pair of decisions.

Vargas overcame a pair of solo homers to work seven strong innings in a 3-2 victory over Toronto on Saturday. “The way he can command that changeup, it’s a tough, tough pitch,” Yost told reporters. “You see a lot of way out front swings on it. Very seldom will he make a mistake on it.” Vargas sports a 6-4 mark with a 3.75 ERA in 17 career appearances versus Minnesota.

Oddsmakers currently have the Royals listed as 120-moneyline favorites versus the Twins, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

Kansas City Royals left-hander Jason Vargas bids to become the American League’s first 12-game winner on Friday as he carries a six-start winning streak into the opener of a four-game series against the visiting Minnesota Twins. The 34-year-old has allowed just 10 runs during that stretch and sports a 6-1 mark with an AL-best 1.92 ERA at home this season.

“He’s leading the league in wins and ERA. I don’t see how he can’t be (the starter in the All-Star Game),” Royals manager Ned Yost said of Vargas, who owns the longest winning streak by a Kansas City starter since Zack Greinke emerged victorious in nine straight starts spanning the 2008-09 seasons. Eric Hosmer enters the weekend series going 7-for-19 during his five-game hitting streak and is 8-for-26 with three homers and 11 RBIs in his career versus Friday starter Ervin Santana. While Kansas City has dropped three of its last four overall and seven of eight to Minnesota this season, the Twins have been outscored 20-10 en route to losing three of their last four. Joe Mauer collected his fifth multi-hit performance in eight outings in Thursday’s 6-3 loss to Boston and is 14-for-36 with nine RBIs in his career versus Vargas.

The Royals were a 7-3 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Tigers. That made winners of bettors who got Detroit at -173 on the moneyline, while the total score (10) was good news for OVER bettors.

Minnesota was a 6-3 loser in its last match on the road against the Red Sox. They lost as +181 underdogs, while the total score of 9 made winners of UNDER bettors.
