Kansas City Royals
Kansas City meets the homestanding Red Sox tonight having lost five straight as of this writing. The hard-luck Royals are 2-8 since July 24, as Cleveland, Toronto and Minnesota have found easy victories in that period vs. Ned Yost’s men.
The Royals have struggled from all sides in their last five while being outscored 42-18 to place the club among MLB’s worst since last week’s trade deadline.
Kansas City ranks 27th overall both offensively (4.31 rpg) & defensively (5.08 ERA).
Lefty Mike Montgomery makes his fourth 2019 start tonight. Montgomery (1-4, 6.34 ERA) has dropped his last four decisions. Further, the 29-year-old’s three appearances as a Royal have become rocky affairs -Montgomery’s allowed ten runs and eighteen hits in his last eleven innings pitched.
All total, in 2019 Montgomery’s teams -Cubs and Royals- are 5-18 when he appears.
Boston Red Sox
As bad as Kansas City’s been recently, the Red Sox have fared arguably worse. Stuck in a seven-game winless drought, playoff hopes are fading quick for the defending World Series champs.
After being swept by Tampa Bay, Boston dropped an 8-6 Saturday meeting against AL East rival New York, losing their fourth straight to the Bronx Bombers in the process.
Whether through bad pitching, bad hitting, or both, the Red Sox have fallen hard with 3/4’s of the regular season gone. Boston is now 5.5 games back of the AL’s final wild card spot.
Though he’s struggled in his last seven starts while allowing 36 runs through 33 innings, Boston has supllied tonight’s opener Rick Porcello with fantastic run support. The Sox are 4-3 through Porcello’s (9-8, 5.74 ERA) last seven.
Overall, Boston is 13-9 this year when Porcello takes the mound.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
As stated above, Boston and Kansas City are each trending downward. However, two factors play in the Red Sox’ favor today: talent and home-field advantage. Without question, at 17-37 away from Kauffman Stadium, KC is among MLB’s least effective road units.
Further, motivated by their diassappearing postseason hopes, Boston will flex its offensive muscle today.
