The Royals have slipped to 13.5 games back in the AL Central already and have lost 7 of their last 10. Anaheim will cost some money on Saturday night, but they have a significant edge at their own stadium.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals offense ranks a respectable 19th in the majors in runs/game but they have gone into incognito mode lately, scoring 1 run or less in 5 of 7 heading into Friday night’s series opener.
Kansas City also has the familiarity disadvantage Saturday night as they’ll be facing Angels starter Griffin Canning for the first time. The long ball is also probably out of the equation as the Royals have hit just 3 total in the past 7 days.
Jakob Junis is the Royals starter Saturday night looking to buckle down after giving up 9ER total in his last two starts. He has now allowed at least 4 ER in four of the last six starts which bodes well for an ‘over’ play.
Los Angeles Angels
It’s only mid-May but the Angels need every win they can get this weekend vs. last place Kansas City. Houston is on an incredible streak with 8 straight wins heading into Friday night and LAA has already fallen back 8.5 games in the AL West.
Both Albert Pujols and Mike Trout have hit HR off Kansas City starter Jakob Junis in just 9 total AB. Junis gave up 3HR in his only start vs. the Angels last season.
LAA starter Canning is looking for a bounce back game after giving up 3 HR and 4 walks last time out vs. the Orioles. The rookie is 1-1 with a 5.65 ERA on the year.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
The Royals do have some value here against Canning but their offense has been so bad lately. Both starters could be gotten to in this one.
