The Line: Kansas City Royals / Chicago White Sox --- Over/Under:
The Chicago White Sox and Kansas City Royals meet Tuesday in MLB action at Kauffman Stadium.
The Chicago White Sox could use a feel good victory in order to snap a six-game losing streak. The White Sox have scored six runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last nine games. The Chicago White Sox have lost 11 straight games when scoring three or less runs. Yolmer Sanchez leads the White Sox with 132 hits and 48 RBI while Jose Abreu and Tim Anderson have combined for 259 hits and 137 RBI. The Chicago White Sox didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was posted.
The Kansas City Royals look for another win after splitting their last eight games. The Royals have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 12 games. The Kansas City Royals have won eight of their last 10 games when scoring more than one run. Whit Merrifield leads the Royals with 166 hits and 53 RBI while Alex Gordon and Salvador Perez have combined for 210 hits and 108 RBI. The Kansas City Royals didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was posted.
The White Sox are 5-1 in their last 6 road games, 22-46 in their last 68 during game 2 of a series and 16-35 in their last 51 Tuesday games. The Royals are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 1-4 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 5-0 in their last 5 home games. The White Sox are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Kansas City and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Kansas City Royals are putting together consistent offense as of late and are probably playing their best baseball right now, even if it's for nothing other than trying to prevent a 100-loss season. The Chicago White Sox are piling up the losses and look like a team that may have checked out and are focused on the offseason. I have a hard time putting any faith in the White Sox on the road with this current losing streak going on. So, give me the Royals here at home.
