Kansas City has taken joy when they see the Los Angeles Angels on their schedule.
The Royals will look to continue their dominance when the teams open a weekday series in Los Angeles starting on Monday night.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals have been the team to beat over the past two seasons in the American League and they have the Angels to thank for some of that.
Kansas City has won 11 of their last 13 games against the Angels, which also includes a 2014 Divisional Series sweep. Kansas City comes in off a 4-2 homestand that saw them take 2 of 3 against the Orioles after taking care of business Sunday 6-1.
Trying to continue their success, the Royals will go with RH Ian Kennedy on Monday night. Kennedy was signed in the offseason for big money to make big time starts and thus far, the signing has paid off.
He is 2-1 with an ERA of only 1.35. Kennedy and the Royals got a bit of a scare earlier this season as his first start was pushed back because of a hamstring. He’s turned in 3 solid outings, but was the tough luck loser after allowing just 2 runs to Detroit last time out.
The Angels have had their share of offensive struggles early on this year.
Los Angeles has recorded 4 or less runs in 9 of their last 10 games. They have fallen in 7 of those encounters and are now 3 games below the breakeven mark.
However, fortunes may turn for them as Mike Trout has loved facing this Kansas City pitching staff. Trout has a .362 average in 26 career games against the Royals.
Pitching wise, the Angels will send out Garrett Richards. The RH is 0-3, but that record doesn’t quite justify how he’s pitched. With just a 3.00 ERA, he’s been on the wrong side of the run support.
Over his first 4 starts, Richards has just 6 total runs of support. In 9 career appearances against the Royals, Richards has an ERA of 4.26.
