Kansas City Royals
This season the Royals only rank 28th in the Majors in runs scored and 16th in team ERA.
While the Royals are one of the lowest scoring teams in the Majors they have combined for 42 runs in their 5-game win streak.
In their win over the Angels last night the Royals banged out 15 hits and they only gave up 2 runs on 6 hits.
Ian Kennedy (0-6, 5.40 ERA) is still looking for his first win of the season and in his last start he gave up four earned runs in 6 innings, but the lineup had his back in a 12-6 win over the San Diego Padres. The Royals had lost his previous 2 starts where he gave up 9 earned runs in 8 innings.
It is strange that on the road this season Kennedy has held opposing hitters to a .209 batting average, but is still 0-2 in five starts on the road with an ERA of 6.12.
One of Kennedy’s best starts of the season was facing the Angels where he took another no decision after going eight innings and not giving up any earned runs and only allowing 2 hits. In 4 career appearances, including 3 starts, against L.A. Kennedy is 1-1 with an ERA of 5.40.
The Royals swept the Angels in a 4-3 game series at home earlier this season where their pitching was stellar only giving up a total of 5 runs.

The Angels have lost 4 games to the Royals this season and have lost 5 straight to them overall.
Jesse Chavez (5-6 5.06 ERA) goes in this AL match up and he had a bad last start only going 3 innings and giving up 6 earned runs, but the Halos’ lineup bailed him out in a 12-6 win over the Houston Astros.
L.A. has won his last 3 starts and in the 2 starts previous to his last one he gave up a combined 3 earned runs in 12 innings.
Chavez recently set an Angels record he would not like to have giving up a HR in 11 straight appearances.
In 6 career appearances, including only one start, against the Royals Chavez is 0-1, but has a solid ERA of 1.65.
The Angels have won 5 of Chavez’s last 6 starts overall and they have won 4 of his last 5 starts facing a team that has a losing record.

Kennedy is still looking for his first win in this game, which will be his 12th start. He will not get it facing an Angels’ team that has won their last 5 games after a loss. L.A. will take this game in what will not be a pitcher’s duel and snap their 5-game skid against the Royals
