The Royals host the White Sox on Thursday evening at Kauffman Stadium.
The White Sox lost five of their last eight games but have won three of their last five.
The Royals have lost four of their last six but have won two of their last three games.
Miguel Gonzalez is pitching for the White Sox and he is 2-6 with a 4.09 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. Danny Duffy is 8-1 with a 2.97 ERA and 1.02 WHIP. He is on the mound for the Royals.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox have scored 24 runs over their last five game, so they’ve found a bit of a scorin touch as of late.
On the season they average just four runs per game which is the 6th worst in the MLB.
They are in the bottom third of most offensive statistical categories, including Home Runs, OBP, and SLG.
Gonzalez has been a decent pitcher for the White Sox with his 4.09 ERA and in his last seven outings, he’s given up three runs or less in five of them.
He just hasn’t received the runs support needed to get the wins and is still sitting on just two.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals playoff hopes are all but dead. They are still mathematically able to make it again but the reigning world series champs don’t look like they are going to get a miracle.
The Royals have scored 36 runs over their last 12 games. That’s just three runs per game.
Over their last three games they have managed to muster up 16 runs so maybe their offensive is coming around.
Danny Duffy has been great for the team, he’s had just one loss and eight wins.
He hasn’t had a poor start in a very long time. He gave up just two in his last outing and none in his outing prior to that over eight innings.
He’s a rock and should shut down the poor offensive of the White Sox in this one.

Free Chicago White Sox vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
Both teams aren’t very good producing offensively but both teams have turned it up just a bit as of their last few games. I would say this matchup is even when it comes to offense.
The pitching matchup is clearly in the Royals favor which should have them pull out on top.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Royals ML
Both pitchers are pretty good against two of the worst offenses in the league.
Despite their recent uptick in offense, it isn’t enough to think they are going to breakout.
This one should stay under.
