Kansas City Royals
Danny Duffy blanked the best offense in baseball for seven innings on Friday night at Minute Maid Park. He didn’t get the win though; the Royals’ offense didn’t manage a run either against Houston starter Dallas Keuchel.
Kansas City’s defense was excellent. It turned three double plays, including two to end the inning when Houston was threatening with the bases loaded.
But the play of the night was made by Rosell Herrera when he leaped up to take a home run away from Alex Bregman in the ninth. Herrera came up in the bottom half of the inning and drove the game-winning triple into right-center field.
There’s never much anything new to say about Jason Hammel. He will take the ball for the Royals in the finale on Sunday.
The Astros lost but so did the Mariners, who blew a 10–5 lead at Fenway Park. That meant the Astros maintained their 3.5-game lead over the M’s in the NL West.
Former first round pick Gerrit Cole takes the mound on Sunday. He has never posted a WHIP under 1.00 for a full year in his career, but he’s on track to do it in 2018 (0.89).
He had never struck out more than 9.0 batters per nine innings entering this season but he’s fanning more than a dozen per nine this year.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction: Cole cruises, Houston wins easy.
It’s just such a lopsided matchup. You’ll probably have to drink some juice to take Houston -1.5 but that’s got to be the play.
