KANSAS CITY - The Twins and Royals meet again tonight (7:10, BSN) as their four-game series at Kauffman Stadium continues.

Jorge Polanco is playing shortstop again with Andrelton Simmons (ankle) sitting out for the third consecutive game. Willians Astudillo will play third and hit cleanup, with DH Nelson Cruz getting a night off.

Righthander Matt Shoemaker (2-6, 5.90 ERA) looks to get on track against Royals righthander Brad Keller (5-4, 5.68).

The Royals won Thursday's opening game 6-5 thanks to a double error by Twins rookie CF Gilberto Celestino, who is back in tonight's lineup, along with four other rookies.
