The Kansas City Royals and the Los Angeles Dodgers will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Dodger Stadium.

The Royals will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Ian Kennedy in this game. Kennedy has a 3-6 record and a 4.44 ERA this season.

Kennedy’s opponent in this one will be Brandon McCarthy. The Dodgers right hander has a 3.25 ERA to go along with a 6-3 record this season.

Kennedy earned his third straight win last Monday against Seattle, allowing one run on four hits with seven strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings. The Southern California native has posted a 3-0 mark and 2.22 ERA in his last four starts after going 0-6 with a 5.40 ERA in his first 11 outings. Puig is 4-for-24 against Kennedy, who is 5-9 with a 4.31 ERA in 20 career starts against the Dodgers, including 0-7 since his last win on Sept. 11, 2012 with Arizona.

McCarthy will be activated from the disabled list to start for the first time since June 25, when he allowed five runs (four earned) in three innings against Colorado. The 10-year veteran has battled knee soreness throughout the season but was cleared to start after throwing a four-inning simulated game last Monday. McCarthy is 3-2 with a 4.05 ERA in 14 career games (six starts) against Kansas City but has had trouble containing Alex Gordon (6-for-14).

Oddsmakers currently have the Dodgers listed as 196-moneyline favorites versus the Royals, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The Los Angeles Dodgers appear determined to remove any possible mystery from the National League West race, and they’re getting closer to their goal each day. The streaking Dodgers have won 24 of their past 28 games heading into Saturday’s contest against the visiting Kansas City Royals, who saw their four-game winning streak come to an abrupt end with a 4-1 loss in Friday’s series opener.

Chase Utley recorded his 1,000th career RBI and Yasiel Puig belted a solo homer in Friday’s victory as the Dodgers won their fourth straight and moved a season-high 30 games over .500. Los Angeles’ starting pitching has been outstanding over the last four games, allowing a total of two runs on 11 hits over 26 innings. The Royals entered this weekend’s series having won 22 of their last 32 games but were held to five hits in Friday’s loss. The top three batters in the order – Whit Merrifield, Ramon Torres and Lorenzo Cain – were a combined 0-for-10 as the Royals struggled against Kenta Maeda and three Dodger relievers.

Los Angeles was a 4-1 winner in its last match on the road against the Royals. They won as -192 favorites, while the total score of 5 made winners of UNDER bettors.

Kansas City was a 4-1 loser in its last match on the road against the Dodgers. They lost as +180 underdogs, while the total score of 5 made winners of UNDER bettors.
