Free Seattle Mariners vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
Kansas City has been playing some solid baseball of late, going 7-3 over their last 10 games. However, they have not gotten much out of Keller this season, and he is having a disappointing August.
On the other side, Seattle is getting outstanding pitching. Kikuchi is the team’s best pitcher and he certainty has the edge in this matchup.
Take the Mariners in the opener.
