AL Central rivals continue their series Saturday afternoon with the Kansas City Royals and Cleveland Indians battling it out.
Both teams enter this series at 4.5 games back in the division, which makes these games so much more important early on as it is a chance to pick up a full game on the competition.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals have struggled on the road this season, which has led to them losing some ground after being right there with the White Sox in the beginning of the season.
Kansas City is just 5-8 on the season and their typically high powered offense has been the biggest blame for that. Kansas City has averaged just 2.69 runs per game this season away from home.
One guy to watch this series will be Eric Hosmer. He is off to a hot start hitting .333 on the season with 12 RBI and 4 homeruns on the year.
Kansas City will send out Ian Kennedy here, who is 3-2 with a solid 2.61 ERA on the season. Kennedy has been a part of the decision in all 5 outings this season, with a win in his last one against the Mariners. Kennedy allowed just 1 run on 4 hits in 5.0 innings of work. While he did get the win, it was the first time Kennedy didn’t make it through 6.0 innings.
The Indians aren’t sure what kind of team they are right now.
After struggling with the Phillies, they improved to 6-0 against Detroit this past week, a team that has given them fits in the past. It’s the starting pitching that has been the difference here. With Carrasco down, Kluber, Bauer, Salazar, and Tomlin know over the course of the next month they need to perform at a high level.
The Indians will recall Cody Anderson here, who has struggled all season long. Anderson was such a big part of the team last season, but this year has been tough on him. Anderson has an ERA that sits at 7.65 this season. The Indians have dropped all 4 games he’s started in, with him allowing 5 runs in 3 straight starts.

Look for him to use that extra couple days off to really get his head right.
