What you need to know: The Dodgers take the best record in baseball and a 10-game winning streak to Kansas City on Friday for the start of a three-game interleague series against the Royals at Kauffman Stadium.
The Dodgers will start right-hander Tony Gonsolin (13-1, 2.30 earned-run average) against the Royals’ Daniel Lynch (4-7, 4.79 ERA). Lynch, 25, is a 6-foot, 6-inch left-hander and was the 34th overall pick in the 2016 draft for Kansas City.
The Royals (47-66, .416) are in fourth place in the American League Central and trail the Cleveland Guardians by 13 games. But Kansas City has won its last two series, taking three out of four from both Boston and the Chicago White Sox, which included a 5-3 win on Thursday over the White Sox behind the pitching of former Dodger Zack Greinke.
