The Kansas City Royals and Milwaukee Brewers meet Sunday in MLB action at Miller Park.
The Kansas City Royals look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Royals have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Royals have won 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 96 hits and 53 RBI. Brad Keller gets the ball, and he is 4-2 with a 2.06 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season. This will be Keller’s second career game against the Brewers.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after winning seven of their last 11 games. The Brewers have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Brewers have won 10 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. Brett Anderson gets the ball, and he is 3-3 with a 4.38 ERA and 24 strikeouts this season. Anderson is 2-1 with a 6.52 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Royals.
The Royals are 4-1 in their last 5 road games, 111-232 in their last 343 games as an underdog and 7-2 in their last 9 overall. The Brewers are 1-6 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 0-4 in their last 4 Sunday games. The under is 5-1 in Royals last 6 Sunday games. The under is 3-1-1 in Brewers last 5 overall. The Royals are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.
Brad Keller has allowed four earned runs and 13 hits in his last 15.2 innings, and he's allowing a .196 batting average and .267 on base percentage on the season. The Royals have a solid pitcher on the mound, but they've had issues scoring runs lately. The Milwaukee Brewers are playing their best stretch of baseball right now and the offense is finally showing signs of life. I'll back the Brewers and the reasonable price.
