A couple of teams looking forward to the upcoming last month of the regular season meet up on Tuesday night at Kauffman Stadium. Both the Indians and Royals are well out of the playoff hunt, and even though Cleveland is in 2nd in the AL Central they’re still 10 GB from the White Sox.
Amed Rosario became the first player on record to go 5 for 5 with five RBI, an inside-the-park homer and one over the fence, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Kansas City Royals 7-2 on Tuesday night.
Austin Hedges popped an RBI single for the tiebreaking run in the 11th inning and the Cleveland Indians beat the Kansas City Royals 5-3 Wednesday night.
The Indians had Monday off, which should help them better prepare to head out on the road after a successful nine game home stand (6-3). Cleveland has dropped 7 of their last 8 after an off day though, and are just 4-13 following a win.
The good news for Cleveland is that they’ve won in 12 of their last 14 trips to Kauffman Stadium. The Indians also tallied a sweep in Cleveland the last time the two teams met up, outscoring KC 23-11 from July 7th to 9th.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals are on a 7-3 run over their last 10, but those were all away games. Kansas City was just 4-6 in their last home stand, but that was against some solid teams in the Yankees, Cardinals, and Astros.
KC did play well over the weekend, taking 3 of 4 in Seattle to push the Mariners to 4.5 back in the wild card race. Salvador Perez has largely fueled the Royals successful recent run, belting out 5 HR in the last 6 games with 13 RBI. Hunter Dozier has a couple HRs in 17 career ABs vs. Plesac as well.
The Royals are a game above .500 at home this season, and have won their last four in game one of a series. KC has also won 5 of their last 7 vs. a RH starter.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Indians are 66-64 overall

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
Both teams are well off the pace in the chase for a wild card spot at this point in time with a month to go in the regular season.
Minor hasn’t pitched great but the fact remains that the Royals have some offensive support to help him on the mound. Salvador Perez is having the best season of his career and has been scorching hot over the last month.
Give the edge to Kansas City in this one.
