The Royals take on the Cardinals in Kansas City on Saturday night. St. Louis will have Jon Lester take the mound, while the Royals will have Brad Keller pitching on Saturday night.

Kansas City has lost three of its last five games, while the Cardinals have won four straight heading into Saturday evening. St. Louis' win streak is in real danger when you consider the recent struggles of Lester.

Lester has performed poorly on the road this season and in his last start against the Royals, he gave up six hits and five earned runs in 5 1/3 innings. Keller hasn't been better, possessing a 2-5 record with a 6.33 ERA at home this season.

Out latest MLB PRO Report shows that, despite this matchup being in the Cards' favor, the Royals have a nice shot to pull off the upset at Kauffman Stadium on Saturday night. Let's take a closer look.
