Kansas City Royals
The Royals managed just four hits against Andrew Heaney, who went the distance in a 1–0 Angels’ win. It was KC’s third consecutive loss and the Royals try to avoid a sweep on Wednesday against Shohei Ohtani before going north to the Bay Area.
KC has only won one out of every three games this season and it’s pretty much been that way the entire way. The Royals haven’t gone on any long winning streaks, or even any terribly long losing streaks, though any team that wins just one out of every three is going to have some bloody stretches on the schedule.
Jason Hammel’s last start came against Oakland. He went six innings and gave up three runs. He was neither good nor bad, giving up nine baserunners in those six frames.
It probably gets tougher on him, facing the same team in consecutive starts, than it does for the offense, though there are different schools of thought out there.
Sean Manaea left with a lead on Tuesday against Texas but the Rangers rallied against the Athletics’ bullpen. Joey Gallo homered and the Rangers scored five in the seventh inning on to get a 7–4 win.
The A’s took two out of three in Kansas City last weekend, despite out-scoring the Royals by 19 runs in the three games.
Frankie Montas made his second start of the season in that series, an outing even better than his first. He went eight shutout innings, giving up seven hits and not walking a batter. He only struck out two but clearly didn’t have to punch many guys out to do the job. He’s given up one run in 14 innings as a starter this season.
