Kansas City Royals
Kansas City is in the midst of a 10 game road trip as they play the Yankees, Rangers, and Red Sox. After dropping 2 of 3 games to the Bronx Bombers, the Royals are 33-40 on the season, third in the AL Central.
The Royals are 10th in MLB with a .243 batting average and 18th in scoring, averaging 4.2 runs per game.
Catcher Salvador Perez has been the main source of production for Kansas City as he leads the team in all the major statistical categories. He has a team high .284 batting average, 18 home runs, and 47 RBI’s.
The Rangers enter with one of the worst records in baseball and 20 games behind the top of AL West division. They have lost 20 of their last 25 games.
Texas’ offense can often show flashes, but it really lands on the pitching to see if they’ll come out on top. Texas is 23rd in MLB, averaging just under 4 runs a game, and 20th with a .230 team batting average.
Isiah Kiner-Falefa has been the most consistent hitter in the lineup for much of the year, leading the team in batting average (.289) and hits (84). The big bat for Texas has been rookie Adolis Garcia, who has 20 home runs and 52 RBI’s.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
This game looks about as close to an even match-up that you will see, as both teams have been struggling, and it’s not easy to find a substantial edge on either side.
Kansas City has won 5 of Minor’s 6 road starts, with those games coming against Oakland, Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh, Detroit, and the Chicago White Sox twice. It’s hard to back the Rangers here, who have lost Dunning’s last 7 starts overall.
I’ll take the Royals on the road in game 1.
