Kansas City Royals
Rolling since the All Star break in an otherwise frustrating season, Kansas City’s recent 7-3 record is the club’s best 2019 stretch by far. Though the Royals were edged Sunday 5-4 by Cleveland, Kansas City’s current two-way play has surprised the league. Further, this run solidifies the MLB education of KC’s young talent.
However, tonight Kansas City will meet Atlanta to kick off a two-game interleague affair. The Braves represent a stern test toward the durability of KC’s recent success.
This matchup is loaded with intrigue and statistical angles which need to be sorted through before a clear on-paper winner emerges -despite vastly different overall records.
Veteran Royals lefty Danny Duffy (4-5, 4.52 ERA) takes the hill tonight opposite Atlanta’s productive stream of bats.
Duffy, a solid Major League hurler, has helped Kansas City gain consecutive wins vs. Detroit and Chicago while yielding six runs through eight innings.
Holding a healthy 6.5 game lead in the NL East, Atlanta rebounded this weekend from three-straight defeats by winning two-of-three vs. second-placed Washington. Ronald Acuna, Nick Markakis and Josh Donaldson each drove in two runs during the Braves’ 7-1 Sunday night victory punctuated by RHP Kevin Gausman’s strong performance.
Atlanta held its divisional ground by splitting that four-game set vs. the NL Wildcard-leading Nationals.
Tonight, the Braves look to halt interleague spoiler Kansas City using balance and metered poise. Ranked among the top offensive units leaguewide, Atlanta’s pitching corps keeps peaking as Dallas Keuchel toes the mound vs. KC.
Keuchel (3-3, 3.58 ERA) has proven solid, if not spectacular, as he acclimates to Atlanta’s standout rotation. The former Cy Young winner seeks redemption tonight after giving up five runs and two home runs during the Braves’ recent 5-4 setback vs. Milwaukee.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
Each club starts a reliable, yet hitable pitcher tonight. That stated, Atlanta owns the proven offense, though Kansas City’s young bats have been good of late.
What’s more, however, Keuchel has experienced KC’s lineup, whereas Duffy must navigate through Atlanta’s solid offensive wall.
