The Kansas City Royals and Chicago White Sox meet Saturday in MLB action at Guaranteed Rate Field.
The Kansas City Royals need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Royals have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Royals have won five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Whit Merrifield leads the Royals with 38 hits and 20 RBI while Maikel Franco and Jorge Soler have combined for 58 hits and 36 RBI. Brady Singer gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 5.16 ERA and 27 strikeouts this season. This will be Singer’s first career game against the White Sox.
The Chicago White Sox look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 11 games. The White Sox have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 11 games. The White Sox have won 12 straight games when scoring four or more runs. Jose Abreu leads the White Sox with 41 hits and 30 RBI while Eloy Jimenez and Tim Anderson have combined for 68 hits and 36 RBI. Dylan Cease gets the ball, and he is 4-2 with a 3.13 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. Cease is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Royals.
Will update with trends once they're released.
The Kansas City Royals have multiple pitchers listed for this contest, so I'm not exactly sure who will be on the mound here, but I'm not sure it matters. Dylan Cease has been solid this month, allowing seven earned runs and 23 hits in his last 29.1 innings with 21 strikeouts. The Chicago White Sox are also tearing the cover off the ball right now, scoring four or more runs in 10 of their last 11 games. The White Sox just aren't a team you should be looking to step in front of, especially when playing a losing team such as the Royals.
I'll take the White Sox and lay the RL for max value.
