The Kansas City Royals will host the Cincinnati Reds for an interleague three-game series starting on Wednesday. This will be the first meeting between these teams this season.
The Reds rallied in the 7th inning as Eugenio Suarez clubbed a tiebreaking three-run home run shortly after Nick Castellanos hit a tying solo shot and the Reds beat the Royals 6-2 on Monday night.
The Reds had a 6-1 lead heading into the bottom of the 8th inning but the bullpen fell apart once again for Cincinnati. The Royals scored 2 runs in the 8th inning then scored 4 more runs in the 9th inning as Salvador Perez hit a walk off single to win 7-6 on Tuesday.
The Cincinnati Reds are 2nd in the National League Central with a 43-40 record after winning their 4th straight game on Sunday and sweeping the Chicago Cubs.
The Reds offense is one of the bests in the league, they are 7th in the MLB with a .248 batting average and 7th with 108 home runs. Cincinnati is led by their 2 elected All-Star starting outfielders Nick Castellanos (.340 AVG, 16 HR, 53 RBI) and Jesse Winker (.314 AVG, 19 HR, 48 RBI).
Kansas City Royals
After getting off to a good start early on, the wheels have unraveled on the Royals season, with the club only winning 6 of their last 28 games.
Kansas City enters Wednesday with a 35-48 record on the season, good for 4th in the American League Central.
The Royals sit near the bottom of baseball in almost all of the offensive categories and their pitching hasn’t helped the cause either. Despite having the 10th best batting average Kansas City is 27th in scoring. Additionally, their team ERA is 28th at 5.06.
Injuries have led to struggles as well, with Andrew Benintendi out, along with both shortstops, Adalberto Mondesi and Emmanuel Rivera. In terms of pitchers they are down 4 relievers as well.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Reds are 44-41 overall
- Reds are 21-21 on the road
- Kansas City is 36-49 overall
- Kansas City is 21-21 at home
Cincinnati Reds vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
Cincinnati is on a bit of a hot streak after sweeping the slumping Cubs while Kansas City continues to struggle.
The Reds are even on the road this season while the Royals are even at home so there isn’t much of an edge there.
Still, I like the Reds to win here as they’ve been playing great ball and controlled the game last night until a bullpen collapse.
Take Cincy in game 3.
