Kansas City Royals
The Royals’ stock has again dropped after an unexpected post All Star break winning streak. Kansas City is 1-6 in their last seven while being swept recently by Toronto. The Jays outscored KC 20-5 in that three-game set, exposing the Royals’ 27th-ranked pitching staff.
This recent play is indicative of Kansas City’s near league worst statistical markers, which are the norm for a rebuilding franchise.
Currently, the Royals are 27 games behind tonight’s opponent, AL Central leader Minnesota. Kansas City is 3-6 this season vs. the Twins.
Danny Duffy (5-5, 4.42 ERA) gets the opening call today. The MLB veteran has won his last two decisions, gaining prime run support, while helping KC win his last four starts. Though, on June 22 Minnesota reached Duffy through eight innings for three runs and three home runs to cap a 5-3 victory.
Overall, Kansas City is 9-8 in 2019 when Duffy starts.
Minnesota enters tonight’s contest needing every victory, especially vs. overmatched opposition, as Cleveland sits three games back of the Twins’ division lead. To their credit, Minnesota is 5-2 in its past seven vs. sub .500 opponents.
Although, Minnesota is coming off a 5-4 Thursday loss opposite Miami. In that contest the fish hung around and struck in the twelfth inning for an improbable series-finale win.
Kyle Gibson (10-4, 4.10 ERA) starts tonight in search of a fourth-straight winning decision. Gibson is coming off a six inning, one hit, nine strikeout gem vs. the White Sox. Minnesota won that contest 11-1. Further, the 31-year-old RHP is 2-0 this season opposite KC, yielding zero runs through eight innings June 14 to help Minnesota blank Kansas City 2-0.
The Twins are 14-7 this season when Gibson appears.
