Cardinals-Royals Preview

(AP) -- Chris Young entered the Kansas City Royals' rotation on a fill-in basis, and while he maintains his endurance was at first lacking, success came immediately.

His fellow starters seem to be catching on, and a recent hot streak has the Royals off to their best 40-game start heading into a three-game home series with the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night.

The Royals (26-14) have won five of six after sweeping a two-game home set against Cincinnati with Wednesday's 7-1 victory. The run came off the bullpen, giving their starters a 20-inning scoreless stretch over a three-game winning streak. Dating to Young's last outing, the starters have allowed five runs in five games after posting a 4.64 ERA.
