The Cardinals will send right-hander Lance Lynn to the hill Friday night in Kansas City against Royals righty Chris Young.
Lynn is keeping steady in 2015 after a breakout season in 2014, leading this season's Cardinals staff with 58 strikeouts and a career-high 10.8 K/9. It will be a challenge to maintain that level of success against a Kansas City club that led the American League in batting average (.287), hits (391) and slugging percentage (.434) entering play Wednesday night.
