Kansas City Royals
Kansas City didn’t score a run on Friday night and its fortune doesn’t look bright in Sunday’s matchup with James Paxton either.
The Royals struck out 10 times in six innings against Paxton back in April and the offense hasn’t improved much since then. Paxton, meanwhile, has two double-digit strikeouts in all three months of the regular season so far and 134 K’s overall in just over 100 innings.
But Brad Keller has a 2.25 ERA in nearly 50 innings since debuting in the big leagues this season. He started this season in the bullpen and has since moved to the starting rotation, where he hasn’t missed a beat.
For as hot as Seattle has been for about the last six weeks, they haven’t won more than five games straight. The Mariners will try to win six on Saturday after shutting out Kansas City for their fifth consecutive on Friday.
Marco Gonzales has been terrific this season and he threw his first career complete game and first career shutout on Friday. Gonzales came over last summer in a one-for-one prospect trade with the Cardinals where the M’s parted with Tyler O’Neil.
James Paxton got a little roughed up (4 runs allowed in 5 innings) two starts ago at Yankee Stadium but bounced right back to dominate Baltimore and get to 7–2 the next time out.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Under is 8-2 in KC last 10 overall.
- Under is 8-2 in KC last 10 on grass.
- Under is 9-3 in KC last 12 road games.
- SEA are 19-7 in their last 26 home games.
- Head to Head: Over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
Free Kansas City Royals vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction: Seattle wins a close game.
This has a narrow Seattle win written all over it. I can’t imagine KC doing much at all against Paxton and the M’s just thrive in this sort of spot where all they have to do is push a couple runs across.
