Kansas City Royals
Emboldened by wide-open second half optimism, Kansas City is 6-1 since the All Star break, and just completed a four-game sweep of division rival Chicago. After a season filled with protracted struggles, the Royals’ recent success is a story unto itself.
Offense has spurred KC’s win binge as the Royals added 49 runs in their last seven outings. This scoring surge totally belies the club’s #26-ranked 4.4 runs-for seasonal average.
Kansas City’s rolling offense seeks further success tonight vs. host AL Central contender Cleveland. The Royals are 4-5 this year opposite an Indians bunch which has claimed five-of-six over KC.
Hoping to reverse that trend, Kansas City starts RHP Jakob Junis (5-8, 5.08 ERA) tonight. Junis, in his third MLB season, is 0-2 vs. Cleveland. The 26-year-old hurler has allowed fifteen hits and eleven runs through ten innings opposite the Indians.
That stated, Junis will need extra offensive support today when his men face Major League Baseball’s third-best pitching staff (3.88 ERA).
Overall, the Royals are 8-12 when Junis starts.
Having won five-consecutive, while completing their own sweep vs. Detroit, the defending AL Central champs are steadily erasing Minnesota’s once imposing division lead.
Excellent pitching and timely offense have bought life to Cleveland’s current win streak. While an elite pitching unit, the Indians’ 4.57 runs-for trend bottom third leaguewide. However, tonight’s matchup seems tailor made to suit Cleveland’s strengths.
Reliable Adam Plutko looks for repeat success this evening vs. streaking Kansas City. On June 24, Plutko (3-1, 5.40 ERA) held the Royals to one hit and one run during four worked innings as Cleveland prevailed 3-2.
Whats more, the Indians are 6-1 when Plutko starts.
