The Line: Kansas City Royals +110 / Seattle Mariners -130 -- Over/Under: 9
The Kansas City Royals and Seattle Mariners meet Wednesday in MLB action at T-Mobile Park.
The Kansas City Royals look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Royals have scored 23 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Kansas City Royals have won five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Whit Merrifield leads the Royals with 93 hits and 39 RBI while Adalberto Mondesi and Alex Gordon have combined for 146 hits and 85 RBI. Brad Keller gets the ball, and he is 3-8 with a 3.97 ERA and 63 strikeouts this season. Keller is 0-1 with a 0.93 ERA and three strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners look for a win after losing seven of their last 12 games. The Mariners have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Seattle Mariners have won five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 80 hits and 49 RBI while Omar Narvaez and Daniel Vogelbach have combined for 112 hits and 65 RBI. Marco Gonzales gets the ball, and he is 7-6 with a 4.50 ERA and 62 strikeouts this season. Gonzales is 2-1 with a 5.06 ERA and 21 strikeouts in his career against the Royals.
The Royals are 16-53 in their last 69 during game 3 of a series, 0-4 in their last 4 Wednesday games and 0-4 in Kellers last 4 starts. The Mariners are 3-7 in their last 10 during game 3 of a series, 8-22 in their last 30 home games and 2-7 in Gonzales' last 9 starts. The Royals are 1-9 in the last 10 meetings and the over is 4-0-1 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Gonzales' last 5 home starts. The under is 4-0 in Kellers last 4 starts overall.
The Kansas City Royals have lost nine of Keller's last 10 starts and a lot of that has to do with a poor offense, as he's been respectable in a lot of those performances. Gonzales has a 6.53 ERA with a .312 allowed batting average at home this season. Gonzales has allowed 18 hits and 13 earned runs in his last 17.1 innings, while walking eight and striking out 10. The Kansas City Royals have the starting pitching advantage and you'd be sitting on a pile of cash if you've been blindly fading the M's like I suggested over a month ago. I'll take a shot with the Royals and the slight plus money.
