The Oakland Athletics and the Kansas City Royals continue their series on Wednesday night at Kauffman Stadium. The Athletics have won seven games in a row over the Royals.
The Oakland Athletics look like completely different teams between games they win and games they lose. In games they win they have given up an average of 7.5 runs per game. But in games they win they have gotten great pitching only giving up one run per game.
This whole season is going to come to down to the pitching for the Athletics. They don’t have a team that is going to score a ton of runs this season. On the season they are only batting .224. On the mound in this game for the Athletics is Andrew Tiggs. In his first game he threw 5.2 innings of shutout ball.
Kansas City Royals
For a Kansas City Royals team that really had high hopes coming into this season, they have had quite a disappointing season so far.
They come into this game with a 2-5 record including dropping the opening game of this series 2-0 to the Athletics.
The strength of the Royals used to be the bullpen but that looks like it might be a downfall for them this season. The Bullpen has pitched 21.1 innings this year and have an ERA 6.33. On the bump for this game is the big off season acquisition, Jason Hammel. In his first game he pitched five innings and gave up three runs, on the way to a no decision.
