Kansas City Royals
The Royals scored one in the tenth to win their final game of three in Chicago, 4–3, on Wednesday and avoid a sweep.
Brad Keller left something to be desired but pitched around four hits and four walks well enough in five innings to allow just two runs to score. Kansas City’s bullpen has shown some improvement and was good on this particular night; Ian Kennedy and Wily Peralta combined to get 10 outs without allowing a run.
Homer Bailey will turn 33 in just a couple weeks and is coming off his first triple-digit season, in terms of innings pitched, since his run of six in a row ended in 2014.
He’s pitched at Kauffman Stadium in all three of his starts this season and he’s been at least pretty good in two of them. The last time out was his best: seven innings of two-hit, shutout baseball against the Indians to earn his first win as a Royal.
New York Yankees
The Yankees fell behind, 3–0, vs. Boston on Wednesday but Brett Gardner hit a grand slam off of Ryan Brasier in the seventh inning and New York completed the mini two-game sweep.
Aaron Boone hasn’t named a starter for this game but it should be CC Sabathia, unless he needs extra rest after his first start of the season that came on the 13th against the White Sox.
Sabathia went five and gave up one measly hit. He didn’t win because Ivan Nova matched him for five before the Yanks got to him later but the five near-perfect innings already has Sabathia seventh on the team in Wins Above Replacement.
Remember, Luis Severino is waiting in the wings, along with the host of position players occupying New York’s Injured List.

This is a bet on Bailey and the Royals’ bullpen holding things together, which I think they may just do… barely.
