The Milwaukee Brewers welcome the Kansas City Royals to Miller Park in an interleague tilt.
The Kansas City Royals have the early lead in the American League Central and the goal is to stretch that lead. The Royals finale’ with St Louis was rained out and perhaps the extra day off will get KC going again as they have played around .500 baseball over the last two weeks. The Royals have dropped two in a row after winning four straight as the Royals fell for the second time in a row by a 3-2 count at St Louis. Jeremy Guthrie fell to 4-4 with all three runs given up on ten hits over five frames with three relievers keeping the Cards at bay. KC managed five hits and walked twice with Salvador Perez and Alex Gordon cracking solo homers. Edinson Volquez will be shooting for consecutive victories when he faces Milwaukee Monday. Volquez comes off of a 7-2 decision at Minnesota where he gave up one run on six hits and a trio of BB in seven frames.

The Milwaukee Brewers have been showing some signs of life recently but the question is will it continue. The Brewers dropped a 4-0 decision to visiting Washington in the final game of their series where decent starting pitching couldn’t overcome a lack of production at the plate. Starter Taylor Jungmann fell to 1-1with a pair of runs given up on seven hits and two bases on balls with Jeremy Jeffress allowing two more to put this well out of reach. Carlos Gomez recorded the lone hit with a single while Scooter Gennett walked. The Brewers are scheduled to start Kyle Lohse in the first game of their series with Kansas City. Lohse was a tough luck 2-0 loser at Pittsburgh last time out with both runs allowed on ten hits in 6.1 frames.
The under is 11-2-3 in Kansas City’s last 16 games as a favorite and is 18-5-3 in their last 26 on grass while the under is 18-5-3 in the Royals last 26 overall. The over is 16-4-1 in Milwaukee’s last 21 home games and the under is 6-2 in their last 8 interleague games while the Brewers are 3-8 in their last 11 home games. I’ll take shot with the Royals who are still one of the best…
