The Kansas City Royals and New York Mets give us some Saturday afternoon action from Citi Field.

I have repeatably said that the Mets are difficult to predict because they win when least expected and lose in the same fashion. I did think the New Yorkers had a decent shot Friday and they got the job done although it was far from easy. After not scoring for Matt Harvey in Thursday's loss at Miami, Dillon Gee nearly suffered the same fate, despite allowing a single run on three hits through seven innings. David Aardsma blew the save, with a run plated in the 9th to make the team go to extras where Eric Young blasted a two run bomb for the win. David Wright also smacked a two run homer in the first, as the bats totaled eleven hits and four walks. Carlos Torres makes his fourth start of 2013 when he takes the bump versus the visiting Royals on Saturday. Torres has been a spot starter with eleven relief appearances under his belt.
If Kansas City wants to stay in the AL Central race, they need to get right back in the win column Saturday. I don't know what to expect from Torres so I'll take a chance with the visitors...
