The Kansas City Royals face the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday, September 8th at Progressive Field for game two of a four-game series. 

The Cleveland Indians defeated the Kansas City Royals by the final score of 5-2 on Monday night in game one of the series. The Indians added their fifth win of the season over the Royals this year, and they have won three straight against Kansas City. The Indians are on a roll lately, as they have won three straight games overall and five of their last six. The Indians head into game two of this series with a 26-15 record, and the team is tied with the Chicago White Sox in the AL Central standings. The Royals have been the complete opposite, as the team has now dropped seven straight games. The Royals are in last place in the AL Central and have a 14-28 record on the year thus far. 

The Kansas City Royals will bring right-hander Jakob Junis to the mound to face the Indians. Junis is 0-1 with a 4.32 ERA through his first 16.2 innings of the season with the Royals. Junis allowed two earned runs through 4.0 innings to the Indians in his most recent start on September 2nd.

The Cleveland Indians are set to send right-hander Triston McKenzie to the bump for Tuesday's game. McKenzie is 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA through his first 16.0 innings of the season with the Indians. McKenzie tossed 6.0 shutout innings in his last start to the Royals in his last outing. McKenzie has started his MLB career on a great note, as he has pitched very well for the Indians this season. McKenzie could prove to be a very valuable piece to the Indian's rotation come playoff time, and the more work he gets in the regular season, the better. 

I think the Cleveland Indians will win their fourth straight game on Tuesday. Jakob Junis struggled against the Indians in his last start, while McKenzie had his way with Kansas City. I will lay the 1.5 runs with the Indians on the run line in this spot.
