The fans at New Busch Stadium will be treated to a game between the Kansas City Royals and the St. Louis Cardinals when they take their seats on Thursday.

The Royals will trot Jason Hammel out to the mound in this one. Right hander Hammel has a 5-9 record and a 4.73 ERA this season.

Hammel’s opponent in this one will be Lance Lynn. The Cardinals right hander has a 3.12 ERA to go along with a 10-6 record this season.

Hammel has recorded quality starts in each of his last two outings and four of his last six. The 34-year-old held Seattle to three runs and six hits over 6 1/3 innings Friday but suffered a hard-luck loss in a 5-2 defeat. Hammel is 4-6 with a 5.68 ERA in 12 career starts against the Cardinals.

Lynn is 4-0 with a 1.21 ERA over his last six starts and has allowed more than one run only once during that stretch. The 30-year-old continued his dominant stretch by holding Cincinnati to one run and three hits over six innings on Saturday. Lynn is 0-1 with a 6.38 ERA in three career starts against the Royals.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cardinals listed as 138-moneyline favorites versus the Royals, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

The St. Louis Cardinals elected not to become sellers at the non-waiver trade deadline, and now they’ve surged into contention in the National League Central. The Cardinals aim for a sixth straight victory and a four-game sweep of the visiting Kansas City Royals when the I-70 Series wraps up on Thursday.

The Cardinals have clawed within 1 1/2 games of the division-leading Chicago Cubs after many thought they would be sellers at the deadline. The player they were thought most likely to deal was right-hander Lance Lynn, who takes the mound Thursday opposite Kansas City’s Jason Hammel. The Royals have dropped three straight and five of their last six to fall four games behind first-place Cleveland in the American League Central and one back of Seattle for the second wild-card spot. Yadier Molina’s grand slam lifted St. Louis to an 8-5 win Wednesday after the Cardinals outscored the Royals 21-6 in two wins in Kansas City to start the series.

The Cardinals were a 8-5 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Royals. That made winners of bettors who got St. Louis at -137 on the moneyline, while the total score (13) was good news for OVER bettors.

Last time out for Kansas City, they were a 8-5 loser as they battled the Cardinals on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Cardinals at -137 were rewarded, while the 13 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
