It’s an American League showdown between two teams who are fighting for their playoffs lives, in this series. The Kansas City Royals and the Seattle Mariners face off in a series important for both teams.
The Royals have won all four of the previous games played this year.
The Seattle Mariners currently are on the outside looking in of a playoff spot, but they still have enough time to turn it around and get in the playoffs, if they get hot soon.
After winning four games in a row they have lost their last two games.
On the mound for the Mariners is Felix Hernandez who seems to be trying to rediscover himself as he doesn’t strike out as many guys. He is been injured a couple of times this season but still comes into this game with a 5-4 record and an ERA of 4.28.
Mariners veteran Felix Hernandez has been placed on the 10-day disabled list, and recently acquired southpaw Marco Gonzales was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma.
He will start Game 1 of Sunday’s doubleheader against the Royals at Kauffman Stadium.
Manager Scott Servais said Hernandez flew back to Seattle to see the Mariners physicians. He’s not sure how long the 31-year-old will be out.
Kansas City Royals
The Kansas City Royals, like the Mariners need to start treating every game like it’s a must win because this playoff race is tight.
They come into this game having lost four of the last five games, but that one win was in their last game against the Mariners.
On the mound for the Royals is Danny Duffy who has pitched really well this year for the team.
He comes into this game having won seven games while losing six and an ERA of 3.42.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 9.5
Gonzales, 25, has gone 2-0 with a 4.50 ERA in two starts with Mariners AAA team Tacoma since being acquired from the Cardinals for Minor League outfielder Tyler O’Neill on July 21.
In 13 combined starts with Tacoma and Triple-A Memphis, Gonzales is 8-4 with a 3.14 ERA. I think him and his change-up will quietly surprise the KC bats.
