Cardinals-Royals Preview

(AP) -- Kendrys Morales hadn't faced St. Louis in more than 20 months before Friday, but not much has changed - he still loves hitting against the Cardinals.

He'll look to power the Kansas City Royals to a fifth straight victory Saturday night against St. Louis.

Morales went 3 for 5 with his fifth and sixth home runs of the season and five RBIs in a 5-0 victory. He's 12 for 26 with four homers, two doubles and nine runs driven in seven career meetings, and Friday's was his first since Sept. 15, 2013.
