Kansas City Royals
Kansas City took the loss while Duffy struggled in his first start of the season against the White Sox only making it four innings giving up five earned runs off of seven hits, while walking two and striking out five. Of those seven hits, three of them were for home runs.
He had his Wednesday start moved back to Friday, and considering pitchers are creatures-of-habit they don’t take well to these types of changes. Luckily for Duffy his start wasn’t just pushed a day back, he’ll have an extra day to get his mind right.
Kansas City’s lineup has had a rough time facing Carrasco only hitting .196/.254/.327 to go along with 11 extra-base hits and 17 RBI in 168 at-bats. There problem has been strikeouts as they own a 12:47 walk-to-strikeout ratio.
Off to a really slow start, Kansas City is only slashing .197/.261/.291 in their first four games to go with eight extra-base hits and a meager 11 RBI.
Carrasco picked up the win in his first start of the season, but it wasn’t a pretty win. He was able to make it 5.2 innings, but gave up five earned off of seven hits while walking zero and striking out four.
He also gave up two home runs, but thanks to their bats, he had some run support to work with. It was by no means his best stuff as he could only produce nine swinging strikes, but I wouldn’t fret over his first start of the season.
It has been a back-and-forth battle between Cleveland’s lineup and Duffy where they own a decent slash line of .248/.304/.403 to go with 17 RBI, but own a porous 10:34 walk-to-strikeout ratio in 149 at-bats.
If you thought Kansas City’s lineup was slumping, well Cleveland could be slumping harder only slashing .161/.262/.298 in their first six games to go along with only 12 extra-base hits and 20 RBI.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction: Cleveland does enough to edge out Kansas City
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
With the way both lineups have fared against the opposing pitchers and taking into consideration their lineups current form, I expect bounce-back performances by both these pitchers as this game results in a low scoring contest
