The Braves face a former teammate in trying to complete a three-game interleague sweep.
Kansas City Royals at Atlanta Braves
Kansas City fell to the Atlanta Braves, 5-4, on Saturday night at Turner Field. Reliever Robinson Tejada gave up a solo home run to Braves 1B Troy Glaus in the bottom of the ninth inning. “He turned on a 95-mph fastball,” said Royals manager Ned Yost. Tejada has been the club’s best reliever over the past two months, allowing just two runs in his past 18 appearances. Dating back to June 11, the bullpen has worked seven games and allowed just four earned runs in 29.1 innings for a 1.23 ERA. The Royals will look to avoid being swept for the first time since a four-game series in Texas on May 6-9. The good news is that the team is 4-4 in their last eight games, but the bad news is that the club has trailed at some point over the first four innings in each of those contests.

Los Angeles Angels at Kansas City Royals
Los Angeles picked up its sixth win in eight games on Wednesday night, grabbing a 7-2 road victory over the Kansas City. The Angels have now won 11 of their last 13 games against the Royals, including eight of the last 10 at Kauffman Stadium. The team’s offense is currently searching for someone to replace 1B Kendry Morales, who is on the disabled list with a broken leg. Manager Mike Scioscia may have found a temporary solution, giving C/DH Mike Napoli his second start at the position. He enjoyed a successful month of May, hitting .322 with eight home runs and 17 RBIs. “Mike’s value to our team is important at any time,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. Los Angeles has compiled an 11-8 daytime mark this season (+360) and the team is 79-34 over the last three years (+4,610).
