If there’s one thing teams have learned in the MLB, it’s no lead is safe when playing the Royals.
Washington looks to rebound as they blew a 6-3 lead on Tuesday in the series opener as Kansas City walked off on them in the 9th.
The Nationals were cruising along up 6-3 in the bottom of the 8th, but the wheels quickly fell off.
Jonathan Papelbon blew the save and took the loss, allowing 3 runs in the bottom of the 9th. The loss was a rare one for the Nationals, as they saw their 4 game winning streak come to an end.
The loss also pushed the Nationals to now 10-4 on the road this season, as they allowed a rare 7 spot after conceding just over 2 runs per road contest.
Washington will go with RH Stephen Strasburg here on Wednesday. The RH has gone a perfect 4-0 this year, with just an ERA of 2.25. He’s allowed 2 runs of less in 4 of the 5 starts and the Nationals have won all 5 of his starts.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals just keep on making magic, even when things aren’t going right. Kansas City had dropped 3 of 4 and 6 of 7 overall heading into Tuesday against Washington.
The Royals rallied for 3 runs off Jonathan Papelbon behind a Mike Moustakas 2 run single, and a walk off single by Lorenzo Cain. This kind of rally is completely reminiscent of 2015, where Kansas City was always coming from behind late in games.
Looking to make it 2 in a row against the Nats, the Royals will send out Kris Medlen. The LH has struggled this season, going just 1-2 with an ERA nearly at 5. He was roughed up in his lone home start against the Orioles, as he allowed 7 runs on 9 hits in just 3.1 innings of work. Length has been his biggest problem this year, as he has made it past the 5th inning just 1 time.
