Kansas City Royals
Kennedy was so-so in his last outing, while he was tagged with his eighth loss of the season in a 1-4 loss to the Seattle Mariners. He went five innings giving up three hits, three earned runs and two home runs while he struck out four and walked one.
In 102.1 innings of work, Kennedy owns a weak strikeout (5.80 K/9) to walk (2.73 BB/9) rate, and has struggled a tad with the long ball (1.23 HR/9) and stranding base runners (62.0% LOB%). The end-result is a 6.16 ERA and a better 4.61 FIP indicating that he’s pitched better than what his ERA would indicate.
Kansas City has been slumping hard as they have lost six straight contests in the past week. During that span their lineup is slashing .264/.301/.396 to go with 19 extra-base hits and 21 RBI.
Slegers was solid in his first start of the season, putting in a quality start and collecting his first win of his career in a 5-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. He went six innings giving up three hits and one earned runs while he struck out two and walked one.
For being 6’10”, Slegers does not induce many strikeouts as in 83 innings in Triple AAA he owned a 5.92 K/9. He does however seem to have good control and can hit his spots owning a 2.04 BB/9 in Triple AAA. Lucky for him he’ll get to face one of the weakest lineups in the league.
Minnesota has managed to play winning baseball in the past week as they’ve won four of their seven contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .244/.283/.399 to go with 21 extra-base hits and 29 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Twins -1.5 & UNDER 9.5 Runs
I know Kansas City has been terrible, but Minnesota as big favorites with the young arm Slegers on the mound is kind of hard to fathom, but then looking at Ian Kennedy’s last 10 starts for Kansas City, all of them have resulted in a loss. I’m going to jump on that streak and take the home team and the run line and the under.
