Twins' Devin Smeltzer looks to continue success against Royals

Just four days removed from a three-game sweep in Kansas City, the Minnesota Twins will host the Royals Thursday evening in the first game of a four-game series. The Twins saw their six-game winning streak snapped Wednesday, while the Royals have lost six straight.

The Royals will send LHP Daniel Lynch (2-3, 4.01 ERA) to the mound to face LHP Devin Smeltzer (1-0, 1.74 ERA). The matchup will be a repeat from the teams' game May 20 in Kansas City.

The Twins had multiple opportunities to extend their streak to seven straight wins Wednesday. They allowed solo home runs to Harold Castro in the sixth and eighth innings, the second one tying the game, but had runners on the corners in the bottom of the ninth with a chance to win.
