This AL matchup includes two teams that are very much well still in the playoff race here in late August.
The Kansas City Royals are not dead yet, they are currently 6.5 games behind the Indians in the Central.
The Boston Red Sox have turned it around after a little bumpy but they are now tied for the lead in the East.
Kansas City Royals
The Kansas City Royals lineup has been up and down for most of this season. They are led by Lorenzo Cain in average in which he is hitting .289 on the season with 27 extra base hits and 52 RBIs.
Eric Hosmer is leading the team in RBIs with 52, he also is hitting .273 on the year with 17 dingers. Kendrys Morales is leading the team in home runs with 20 while hitting .243 with 58 runs batted in.
The Royals will have their hands full with Price who has been pitching well.
The Royals have Danny Duffy on the bump on Saturday night on the road. Duffy has pitched well all season where he stands at an 11-1 record with a 2.66 E.R.A. and 147 strikeouts.
He had a terrific start his last time out in a victory against the Minnesota Twins. Duffy pitched in 6.2 innings where he gave up 1 earned run on 8 hits.
He also walked 1 and struck out 4 in the victory. He looks to take down this giant of a lineup that the Red Sox have.
Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox lineup has been their pride and joy all season. The Red Sox are led by David Ortiz in his farewell season.
Ortiz is hitting .321 on the season with 71 extra base hits and 100 runs batted in. Mookie Betts has had a terrific summer, he is hitting .314 with 28 home runs and has driven in 91 runs this season.
Xander Bogaerts started off the season very hot, but he has seem to cool down just a tad here in the second half of the season. Bogaerts is hitting .305 on the season with 26 doubles and 71 RBIs.
The Red Sox look to give Duffy another tally in the loss column.
The Red Sox have their ace David Price on the mound and he has looked good as of late here in the season. Price is currently 12-8 on the season with a 4.00 E.R.A. and 179 strikeouts.
Price looked like his dominant self in the last start against the Tampa Bay Rays. He pitched in 8 shutout innings where he gave up only 2 hits.
Price struck out 8 Rays and walked 2 in the big time win. Look for Price to look to turn it up heading into the playoffs.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
This has the big chances to be a pitcher’s duel with Duffy pitching out of his mind this season, and Price being Price. I look for the Red Sox to take this one in a low scoring game.
Price will not have many issues with this mediocre Royals lineup. Duffy will continue to pitch as well as he has this whole season, but I look for the Red Sox to get the better hand in this one.
