The Minnesota Twins will play the Kansas City Royals in Game 1 of their series at Kauffman Stadium on Tuesday night.
The Minnesota Twins are 4-6 this season and have lost four of their last six games. Minnesota is coming off of a series split against the Red Sox, including an 8-3 win on Monday afternoon. The Minnesota pitching staff has a 4.09 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a .232 opponent batting average this year. The Twins offense has scored 37 runs with a .190 batting average and a .287 on base percentage. Jorge Polanco has two home runs and seven RBI’s for the Twins this year. The projected starter for Minnesota is Chris Archer, who is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.50 WHIP over 4 innings pitched.
The Kansas City Royals are 3-5 this season and have lost five of their last six games. Kansas City is coming off of a series loss to Detroit, losing two of their three games. The Kansas City pitching staff has a 5.13 ERA, a 1.39 WHIP, and a .264 opponent batting average. The Royals offense has scored 25 runs with a .207 batting average and a .263 on base percentage this season. Andrew Benintendi has led the Royals offense with a .357 batting average and four RBI’s this season. The projected starter for Kansas City is Carlos Hernandez, who is 0-0 this season with an 8.31 ERA and a 1.85 WHIP, across 4.1 innings pitched.
Minnesota is 1-5 in their last 6 games with the total set between 7 and 8.5. The over is 4-1-2 in Minnesota’s last 7 road games against a right-handed starter. Kansas City is 0-4 in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record. The under is 4-0 in Kansas City’s last 4 games following an off day. The over is 11-5-3 in these two teams last 19 head to head meetings.
A big question for the Twins this season is if Archer will be able to get back to his dominant pitching ways, while Kansas City’s starter has had issues to start the year. The Kansas City offense has struggled out of the gate this year and that bodes well for the Twins and Archer. I like Minnesota here as more of a fade on the Royals.
