The Kansas City Royals and Chicago White Sox face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Guaranteed Rate Field. In the first game of the series it was the Royals that won 6-0. On Wednesday the White Sox got some revenge winning 7-3.
The White Sox had lost eight games in a row before finally beating the Royals on Wednesday. In the previous four games the White Sox scored only seven runs, and with the talent in their lineup, that is inexcusable. Andrew Vaughn has been the top player for the White Sox hitting four home runs and driving in 12 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Royals who sit with a 6-10 record overall but they have lost five of their last six games. The Royals scored six runs two games ago, but in the last game the offense was back to really struggling. Salvador Perez has been the top player for the Royals hitting five home runs and driving in eight RBIs.
On the mound for the Royals is Brad Keller who sits with an 0-2 record and an ERA of 2.55. Keller has had 14 strikeouts. In his last start against the Mariners he went 4.2 innings giving up six hits and four runs.
On the mound for the White Sox is Michael Kopech who sits with a 0-0 record and an ERA of 0.64. In 14 innings he has given up six hits and two runs. In his last start against the Minnesota Twins he went five innings giving up three hits and zero runs.
The Royals are 3-7 in their last ten games against a right handed starter. The White Sox are 74-36 in their last 110 home games. The under is 17-5 in the last 22 meetings between the Royals and White Sox. The over is 5-2-1 in the White Sox’s last eight games played on Thursday.
Both starting pitchers in this game have been strong, and neither of these offenses can really be trusted. No one with an ERA of 2.55 should be sitting with a record of 0-2, but the Royals haven’t been giving Keller any run support. It wouldn’t shock me if this was a game that was 0-0 at the end of nine and then it went to extra innings. Look for a lower scoring game, and the under is going to cash.
