The Kansas City Royals are on the road as they kick off a four-game series with the Baltimore Orioles Monday afternoon.
Andrew Benintendi hit a go-ahead single in the 8th inning, sending the Royals over the Orioles 3-2 on Monday night.
Cedric Mullins, DJ Stewart, and Austin Hays all homered and the Orioles beat the Royals 7-3 on Tuesday night.
The Orioles made an improbable comeback Wednesday night as they rallied from down 8-0 and scored 9 runs in the 8th inning to win 9-8 in front of a record low attendance of 4,965 fans.
Kansas City Royals
Kansas City has been a below average team all season and they continue to sit at that spot as Septembers rolled around. The Royals are 62-75, good for 4th in the AL Central.
Catcher Salvador Perez leads the Royals offensively as he is having the best season of his career and possibly for any catcher in history. He hit his career high 41st homer on Sunday (2nd most in the league) and is in reach of the franchise home run record of 48 set by Jorge Soler in 2019.
With 20 home runs in 46 games since the All-Star break, Perez leads the majors during that span. He already has season highs in HR’s, RBI’s, and walks.
Baltimore had the #1 pick three seasons ago and they’re currently in the drivers seat for that opportunity again. The Orioles own a league worst 43-93 record and have the worst home record as well at 19-45.
Outfielder Cedric Mullins has led the lowly Orioles all season. Last week, Mullens stole his 25th base on the season, an important one for Mullins as he attempts to become just the third player in Baltimore Orioles history to hit 25 home runs and steal 25 bases in a single season. He has 24 homers.
With a slash line of .306/.370/.531 and the most hits of any player in the American League entering the month of September, Mullins has been nothing short of incredible in 2021.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
The Royals have chosen to send out one of their best relief pitchers Hernandez to the mound to cap of this series with Baltimore. The right hander has pitched 70 innings this season and owns a 5-1 record with a 3.57 ERA.
Kansas City had a collapse of epic proportions last night in the 8th inning as they allowed 9 runs and blew an 8 run lead. I don’t see them making such mistakes again as they’ve got to be kicking themselves for that performance.
Baltimore has had good offensive showings the last 2 games but this is not a team built for continued success in any aspect of the game.
Take Kansas City to even the series.
