The Royals take on the Indians in game 1 of a 4 game set.
The last time these 2 teams met, the Indians took the series 2-1.
The Royals are on a 5 game winning streak and are 8-2 in their last 10 games. The Indians are on a 3 game losing streak and are 4-6 in their last 10 games.
Ventura is 4-3 with a 5.17 era and Carrasco is 2-0 with a 2.45 era.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals are hot right now, winning 5 in a row. They’ve also won 7 of their last 8 games. They’ve scored 58 runs during this 8 game stretch.
That’s an average of over 7 runs per game.
They are really looking like the team that won the world series in 2015. Merrifield, Cain and Hosmer are hitting amazing this season. Morales seems to have found his stroke and Orlando is hitting .376!
The runs will keep on coming for the Royals should they stay hot..
The Royals have not been great keeping their opponents off the score board, they’ve given up 28 runs in their last 6 games, that’s almost 5 runs per game, so it’s mainly been their run production that has won them games.
Ventura in his last outing gave up 7 over 7 innings.
He had a rough 2nd inning then seemed to settle down a bit. He gave up 2 in the 4th and another in the 5th against a mild White Sox offence.
He’s given up a minimum of 3 runs in his last 6 starts.
The Indians have not played well as of late, losing 3 in a row and 4 of their last 5. They have been putting up a decent amount of runs, so it’s been their pitching that has been struggling.
They rank 7th in the MLB with 4.8 runs per game and over their last 9 games, they’ve scored 45 runs.
That’s 5 runs per game which is right around their average.
During their current 3 game losing streak, they’ve scored just 9 runs and have given up 22.
However, this game features Corrasco and this team typically wins when he is on the mound. In his last 5 starts, the Indians have won all 5 of those games.
He’s given up just 4 runs once and just 1 run in 4 of those starts.
In his last start, he left the game early and will be limited to just 80 pitches on thursday. So we’ll have to consider this strongly for this game.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The Royals have been hot and the Indians have not but the pitching matchup favours the Indians.
Both teams have been putting up a lot of runs so expect this game to be no different.
Corrasco will be limited to just 80 pitches, so that could hurt the Indians. The game will probably be close when Corrasco leaves the game, probably in the 5th or 6th, then the Royals may take off.
It also depends which Ventura shows up because he’s certainly capable of pitching a decent.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Royals ML
Royals have been tough to keep off the scoreboard, so I think they’ll get at least 3 on Corrasco, they’ll likely tack on a few more runs after he exits the game.
The Indians should put up a bunch of runs on Ventura, unless he’s really on that night.
This game should go over considering both teams have been over 13 straight games combined.
