Royals quiet at the plate again

The Royals had another poor showing at the plate on Friday, losing 4-1 to the Mariners. Kansas City is just 25-56 on the season and 14-27 on the road. KC is averaging 3.51 runs per game this season while allowing 5.42 per contest.

Jason Hammel gets the start for the Royals this evening. Hammel has started 16 games this season and has a 2-9 record with a 5.34 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP. Hammel has pitched a total of 94.1 innings and has 62 strikeouts with 30 walks.

Mariners sweep the Orioles

Seattle has won five straight games thanks to Friday’s 4-1 victory. The Mariners are now 52-31 overall and 26-14 at home. Seattle is putting up 4.41 runs per game this year while giving up 4.18 per contest.

Felix Hernandez gets the start for the Mariners this evening. He is starting his 18th game of the season and comes in with a 7-6 record with a 5.10 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. King Felix has pitched 95.1 innings this year and has 80 strikeouts with 35 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Kansas City

The Royals are 6-24 in their last 30 against AL West opponents and 4-14 in their last 18 games following a loss.

Seattle

The Mariners have won 13 of their last 16 against a right-handed starter and 20-7 in their last 27 games following a win.

Prediction:

Kansas City can’t seem to get on track and their hitting is the biggest issue. Felix Hernandez hasn’t had a good year on the mound, but he still can get strikeouts and should be able to work through this lineup. Seattle has done a great job in the last month in beating the bad teams. I think that continues tonight.

 

The Pick: Seattle Mariners -205
