Angels Vs. Royals Preview: Angels Look To Zack Greinke To Make Up Ground In Playoff Race

The Los Angeles Angels face the Kansas City Royals in the second of three games at Kaufman Stadium, looking to make it two in a row after winning Friday night, 9-7. The Angels sit 2½ games back in the AL Wild Card race and need to make the most of every opportunity.

Zack Greinke (5-2, 4.15 ERA) will look to continue his recent hot streak. He's 4-0 with a 1.88 ERA in his last four starts, showing some of the form that won him the 2009 Cy Young Award. Jeremy Guthrie (7-12, 5.06 ERA) will pitch for Kansas City. He's on a hot streak of his own, having won his last seven, and in nine career appearances versus the Angels he's held them to a .206 batting average.
