    American League Preview from The Sports Network



    Tuesday, May 14th (All times Eastern)

    Kansas City Royals (19-16) at LA Angels of Anaheim (14-24), 10:05 p.m.

    Probable Starting Pitchers: Kansas City - Jeremy Guthrie (5-0, 2.28) LA Angels - Jason Vargas (1-3, 4.26)

    (Sports Network) - Jeremy Guthrie has a shot on Tuesday night to match the longest winning streak by a pitcher in Kansas City Royals history.

    If Billy Butler and the offense can match their offensive production from Monday's opener of a three-game set against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, getting Guthrie his 11th straight win shouldn't be a problem.

    Guthrie has already set a franchise best by going undefeated over his past 18 starts dating back to last season. He hasn't been dealt a loss since Aug. 3 against Texas and is 10-0 since. That has the righty one win shy of matching the longest winning streak in team history, held by Paul Splittorff (Aug. 13, 1977-April 22, 1978) and Rich Gale (June 17-Aug. 23, 1980).

    Guthrie won his third straight start overall on Thursday against his former Baltimore club. Coming off the first shutout of his career, Guthrie held the Orioles to a pair of runs -- one earned -- on seven hits and three walks over six innings.

    The 34-year-old is 5-0 with a 2.28 earned run average in seven starts this season and is 3-3 lifetime against the Angels with a 3.93 ERA in 10 meetings (9 starts).

    The Royals used 19 hits to defeat the Angels 11-4 on Monday. Five of those came from Butler, who had a pair of doubles and drove in five runs. He had hit just .114 over his previous nine games.

    Salvador Perez went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI and Lorenzo Cain added three hits, two RBI and two runs scored for the Royals, who snapped a three- game losing streak and won for the second time in their past eight games.

    "We knew the offense would click, and tonight it did. Up and down, everyone contributed. Billy is one of the best hitters I have ever seen, he can really hit and he can carry the team for a period of time," said Royals manager Ned Yost.

    Luis Mendoza gave up three runs on six hits while striking out six over six frames to get the win. Luke Hochevar earned the first save of his career after spinning three innings of one-run ball in relief.

    J.B. Shuck, Albert Pujols, Mark Trumbo and Chris Iannetta each drove in a run for the Angels, losers in six of their last nine games.

    Joe Blanton was tagged with the loss after giving up seven runs on 12 hits over 4 2/3 innings.

    "I felt good. I thought I had good stuff, but when they made contact it found a hole. That's baseball," Blanton said.

    Getting the call for the Angels will be Jason Vargas, who followed up a shutout win over the Orioles on May 3 with a rough outing at Houston on Thursday.

    Vargas matched season highs by giving up five runs and 10 hits over 5 2/3 innings, with the southpaw striking out seven to two walks. Vargas had allowed just five runs total over his previous 24 innings and sits at 1-3 on the year with a 4.26 ERA in seven starts.

    The 30-year-old has faced the Royals five times prior, going 4-1 with a 3.55 ERA.

    The Angels won five of nine versus the Royals a season ago, splitting six contests in Anaheim.
