For the first time in all of 2015, the Kansas City Royals are in the midst of a major cold streak. They’ll try to change their fortunes when they get set to take on the Baltimore Orioles in the first of three on Friday night.
Kansas City is in danger of giving up their top spot in the American League as they dropped another series, this time to the Minnesota Twins during the week.
Baltimore has pretty much used their poor play to find themselves out of the AL Wild Card race and will simply try to play spoiler and ruin the Royals chances of the top AL spot.
LH Danny Duffy will oppose RH Mike Wright in the series opener on Friday night.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals were on cruise control all season long as they never endured any time of losing streak that was too significant. However, for the first time in 2015 they are doing just that.
Kansas City has lost 5 of their last 6 following their 3-2 12 inning loss to Minnesota last time out. In unorthodox Royals fashion, they had a chance in the bottom of the 11th with 2nd and 3rd and 1 out, but failed to bring home the winning run.
Trying to get them back on track, they’ll go with LH Danny Duff.
Duffy comes in off a loss to the White Sox as he allowed 4 runs on 7 hits over 7.0 innings of work. It was the first time since August 4th that Duffy pitched 7.0 innings.
Duffy beat the Orioles on August 25th as he allowed two runs on five hits in 5.2 innings of work.
Baltimore was once in the middle of the AL Wild Card race for not only the 2nd spot, but also the first spot. Things haven’t gone according to plan as they have pretty much eliminated themselves with poor pitching and poor offensive numbers.
Baltimore has lost 15 of 18 which has put them in a position to just play spoiler as they have already one once recently. Baltimore knocked off the Yankees in 2 of 3 last week to hurt their chances atop the AL East.
Trying put the brakes on bad play, Baltimore will send out Mike Wright. This will be the 2nd start Wright is making since coming off the DL with a calf injury.
Wright pitched just 4 innings against the Blue Jays allowing 3 runs on 7 hits.
Wright has never faced the Royals in his career and is 2-1 with an ERA of 4.15.
