Kansas City Royals
I would say these clubs are heading in opposite directions but the Royals have been down all season. Even though they are healthy now they just don’t have enough to compete. There are just a few spots in the lineup where they seem settled bit getting the likes of Soler, Mondesi and Dozier going on the same nights has been tough.
The pitching is no good either with Sparkman vs. Scherzer one of the most lopsided matchups we will see all season long. Sparkman has been especially disastrous on the road with an ERA over 10. He cannot keep the ball in the ballpark with 9 homers allowed in just 21 innings. Look for Washington to feast on him.
The Nats are looking to close strong heading into the All-Star break. Some fortuitous scheduling has helped as they have been playing some of the worst teams in the league over the last week plus. The pitching has been great, holding opponents to two runs or less in the last four games heading into Friday. A lot of that is on the starters but the bullpen is coming through too.
Max Scherzer has been dynamite since the beginning of May. In his last 12 starts he has not yielded more than 3ER and in half of them he has struck our 10 or more. It was really just one bad April start and a small sample size that had us asking questions that just seem silly now. He is putting up better numbers than last year. Not fading.
