Charlie Morton had a little trouble in the middle innings on Friday but he still went six innings, gave up just three runs, and, most importantly, got the win.
Morton was backed by Evan Gattis, who hit a go-ahead grand slam after the Royals took a brief lead. It was Gattis’ 14th homer of the season, tying him for the team lead with George Springer.
The Astros have 46 wins but their Pythagorean expectation says they should win even more often than that. It has them five full wins better (51–20), which suggests Houston has actually been unlucky so far this season.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals, meanwhile, have just 21 wins, which include one in their last 10 games.
Brad Keller will make his fourth career start on Sunday. He has yet to face the Astros and has gotten a little deeper into each game as he progresses his big league career.
Keller went 5.1 in his last start at Oakland and gave up just two runs. In total, he’s gone 12.2 innings and allowed four.
Kansas City is just 8–28 against the American League West and East Divisions. It could be even worse if it wasn’t already in the worst division in baseball.
