Twins' Odorizzi faces Royals, seeking 11th straight win

Minnesota right-hander Jake Odorizzi will try to take over the major league lead in wins on Thursday night when the American League Central-leading Twins open a four-game series at Kansas City.

Odorizzi (10-2, 2.24 ERA) enters the game tied with Lucas Giolito of the White Sox for most wins in the big leagues. He'll be opposed by right-hander Glenn Sparkman (1-3, 4.01) in a sequel to a matchup that took place in Minneapolis on Saturday, when the Twins won 5-4.

Odorizzi allowed seven hits, including home runs by Jorge Soler and Whit Merrifield, and all four Royals runs in six innings. He walked two and struck out seven in winning his 10th straight decision, the longest winning streak by a Twins starter since Johan Santana set the club record of 17 consecutive wins between July 17, 2004, and April 26, 2005.
