Royals, Twins enter series heading in different directions

Kansas City will carry a modicum of momentum home from a seven-games-in-seven-days road trip with its first road series win and a split in Texas as it battles the Minnesota Twins on Monday afternoon at Kaufmann Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.

The Twins will send right-hander Lance Lynn (2-4, 6.34 ERA) to the mound in the opener and the Royals will counter with right-hander Jakob Junis (5-3, 3.52).

The Royals managed a 2-2 split of the four-game series with the Rangers with a 5-3 win on Sunday. They won four of the seven games on the road trip and have found a way to get a crucial piece of their pitching puzzle, right-hander Jason Hammel, back on track.
