The Kansas City Royals and Milwaukee Brewers meet Saturday in MLB action at Miller Park.
The Kansas City Royals look for a win after winning seven of their last nine games. The Royals have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last seven games. The Royals have five of their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Whit Merrifield leads the Royals with 59 hits and 29 RBI while Maikel Franco and Salvador Perez have combined for 94 hits and 53 RBI. Kris Bubic gets the ball, and he is 1-5 with a 4.50 ERA and 37 strikeouts this season. This will be Bubic’s first career game against the Brewers.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Brewers have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in three of their last four games. The Brewers have won nine straight games when scoring four or more runs. Keston Hiura leads the Brewers with 41 hits and 32 RBI while Avisail Garcia and Christian Yelich have combined for 75 hits and 36 RBI. Corbin Burnes gets the ball, and he is 3-0 with a 1.98 ERA and 74 strikeouts this season. This will be Burnes’ first career game against the Royals.
The Royals are 4-1 in their last 5 interleague games, 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 5-2 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series. The Brewers are 13-6 in their last 19 Saturday games, 21-10 in their last 31 during game 2 of a series and 2-5 in their last 7 interleague home games. The under is 5-2 in Royals last 7 road games. The under is 3-1-1 in Brewers last 5 overall. The Royals are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee.
Kris Bubic has allowed three earned runs and 10 hits in his last 12 innings while Corbin Burnes has allowed one earned run and nine hits in his last 17.2 innings. Burnes has been money pretty much all season, and he seems to be getting better by the month. Oh, and don't look now, but the Brewers offense is finally showing signs of life. Give me the Brewers and the RL for max betting value.
