After a disappointing weekend, in which they lost both games to the Giants, the Oakland A’s stormed into Kansas City and pounded the listless Royals, 19–4.
Brad Keller got through the first inning unscathed for Kansas City and then things unravelled completely.
Oakland scored five in the second, five in the third, a run in the fourth, three more in the fifth, one in the sixth, one in the seventh, two in the eighth, and then one more in the ninth, for good measure.
Marcus Semien needed just two hits to drive in a team-high seven runs. Josh Phegley had four hits and Khris Davis, Mark Canha, and Matt Olsen each had three.
Canha is the guy who is really making a difference of late for Oakland. He’s healthy and in the lineup with 300 at-bats under his belt now and his OPS+ is over 150. That leads the team.
Kansas City Royals
The A’s didn’t have to exert their bullpen in the least in Monday’s win. Homer Bailey pitched well with the big lead and got through six comfortably. The young kid AJ Puk went two and Lou Trivino got some work in the ninth.
Tanner Roark will face Jakob Junis in this one. Junis started this season well but it wasn’t long until he started to fall off.
Roark is the guy I really like in this matchup and not just because he’s pitching with Oakland’s defense behind him.
He’s 2–1 in four starts with Oakland and hasn’t given up more than two runs in any single outing. In fact, he’s given up exactly two in each of his last three starts and has lasted at least six innings each time; in two of the three, he got at least an out in the seventh.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction: Roark.
The A’s veterans, namely Fiers, Anderson, and Roark are pitching like they have to be the guys to take their team to the pennant. That’s what’ll have to happen, too. Roark is in a zone and the Royals aren’t going to be the team to trip him up.
