It’s an American League showdown on Wednesday afternoon at the Oakland Coliseum. The Kansas City Royals come to town to take on the Oakland Athletics.
These two teams have matched up four times so far this season with each team winning two of the games.
Kansas City Royals
With such a tight playoff race for the American league wild card spot, every game is a huge game at this point. After a tough stretch at the beginning of last week they come into this game hot, having won the last three games.
On the mound for the Royals in this one is Danny Duffy who has been pretty inconsistent this year. He comes into this game with a 7-8 record and an ERA of 3.68.
In his last start against the White Sox he really struggled though. He went 6.1 innings and gave up seven hits and five runs.
On the other side of this match up is the Oakland Athletics who can play a huge spoiler these last weeks of the season. They do come into this game really struggling though having only won four of their last ten games.
They have had issues scoring runs, something that has been a reoccurring problem all year.
On the mound for the Athletics is Paul Blackburn who seems to be good every other start. The good news for the Athletics is in his last start he struggled.
He went 5.2 innings against the Orioles and gave up ten innings and four runs. If the trend holds, he should have a good start in this one.
