The Jays and Royals close their three game series out on Sunday afternoon at Kaufmann Stadium.
The Jays are in a race for top spot in the AL as it is currently tied four ways. The Jays have reached the top by winning 4 games in a row.
The Royals on the other hand have lost seven of their last 10 games and three games in a row.
Marcus Stroman is on taking the mound for Toronto and is 8-4 with a 4.74 ERA and 1.29 WHIP. Yordano Ventura is 6-9 and is pitching for the Royals. His ERA is 4.83 and WHIP is 1.38.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays haven’t been scoring much as of late but they are always an ever so dangerous offensive ball club.
They have scored just 13 runs over their last four games during this win streak but have given up just six.
Over their last six games they have scored just 16 runs, so it’s safe to say that they’ll need to start scoring more if they want to continue winning.
Stroman looks like he had found his groove but still is having the occasional bad outing.
In his last six starts, he’s had four starts where he’s given up just five runs in total. The other two starts weren’t as impressive, he gave up four and seven in those ones.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals have looked nothing like the team that won the World Series last year and one main reason is their inability to produce runs.
Over their last nine games they have scored just 20 runs! That is absolutely horrendous.
Things aren’t going to change anytime soon but Cain did return recently so he will add a bit of a boost.
Ventura has looked pretty good since the start of July. He’s given up three or less in five consecutive starts going at least five innings.
This is one of the Royals strengths and what generally keeps them in games until the end.
