Kansas City Royals
The Royals will be looking to improve their poor record when they head to Maryland to play the Baltimore Orioles. Although the Royals are already thinking about next season, they have remained pretty scrappy winning 4 of their last 10 games. Kansas will look to Mike Montgomery (3-5, 4.63 ERA) for a quality start here and he is certainly capable of just that as he has had a decent year by the Royals standards.
Montgomery was awesome in his last start going 6 innings and giving up only 1 unearned run in a 4-1 win against the Mets on Friday. The Royals lefty will be looking to extend on his 13 innings pitched streak without surrendering an earned run. He might be able to do it too, if his career stats against the Orioles are anything to go by. Facing 32 Orioles batters in his career, he has only given up a .219 average and only conceded 2 extra base hits in that time.
The Orioles have also had an awful season and boast one of the worst pitching rotations in the league. Baltimore ranks 30th in ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 29th in K’s and the Orioles starter today has not really helped those numbers much. Aaron Brooks (2-7, 6.49 ERA) will head to the hill on Wednesday and will have a decent opportunity to fix his 2019 stats a bit. The reason for that is outside of Whit Merrifield and Jorge Soler the Royals have a brutally bad batting unit.
Even with the help of those guys the Royals rank way towards the bottom of all important offensive categories except for stolen bases (96, ranking 2nd). That should open the door for Brooks to have a decent start if he has the capability to do so.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
I don’t have confidence in either of these pitchers and think this game will go over the total. I especially think Brooks will have a poor start here as he has conceded 22 hits and 17 earned runs over his last 13.1 innings pitched (3 starts). There are also plenty of trends that point towards the over and looks to make the most sense to me here. I would also lean towards the Royals because of the pitching matchup.
