M's unable to mount offense

MLB Betting Trends
The Royals are 23-48 in their last 71 games overall. Kansas City is 1-6 in the last seven Keller road starts.
The Mariners are 15-38 in their last 53 games overall. Seattle is 0-4 in the last four Gonzales home starts.
Seattle looks checked out right now and who can blame them following the recent trades of Jay Bruce and Edwin Encarnacion? Gonzales has been disappointing following a strong start to the season and KC is actually playing some good baseball right now. I'm going to try and ride if for another day. Going with KC in this spot.
