Kansas City Royals
The Royals finished their series in Baltimore by losing the final two games. Mike Montgomery gave up eight hits, including three home runs, in Wednesday’s defeat.
Kansas City gets the day off the travel on Thursday and then I have to imagine it will get swept in Cleveland this weekend.
The Indians have lost two in a row, headed into Thursday, when they play in New York one more before traveling home without a day off in-between.
That said, the Royals are just overmatched. They swept the first head-to-head series of the year but have gone 3–10 since.
Zach Plesac, the 24-year-old rookie sensation out of Ball State (and nephew of former big league pitcher Dan Plesac) will oppose whomever Ned Yost decides to start.
Plesac has been a steady presence in the rotation ever since he got the call. He’s made 15 starts and gone 6–4 in over 81 innings. His ERA+ is 134 and WHIP just a tad over 1.22.
The two games so far in New York have certainly hurt Cleveland and it’s a reminder of how fragile Cleveland’s playoff chances even are.
The Tribe has been so hot that it seemed like the only question was whether or not it would beat out of the Twins for the division. Well, Minnesota is three games clear and the A’s and Rays are both less than a game back. These are games the Indians must have and I believe they will.
