The Kansas City Royals will play the Baltimore Orioles in Game 1 of their series at Camden Yards on Saturday night.
The Kansas City Royals are 8-15 this season and have lost five of their last six games. Kansas City is coming of a series loss against St. Louis, where they lost two of the three games. The Kansas City pitching staff has a 4.57 ERA, a 1.36 WHIP, and a .250 opponent batting average this season. The Royals offense has scored 70 runs with a .218 batting average and a .286 on base percentage. Andrew Benintendi is batting .354 with one home run and 11 RBI’s for the Royals this season. The projected starter for Kansas City is Carlos Hernandez, who is 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA and a 1.89 WHIP over 18 innings pitched this season.
The Baltimore Orioles are 10-16 this season and have won four of their last six games. Baltimore is coming off of a series split against the Twins, where they won two of the four games. The Baltimore pitching staff has a 3.85 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a .251 opponent batting average. The Orioles offense has scored 88 runs with a .225 batting average and a .303 on base percentage this year. Austin Hays is batting .287 with three home runs and 12 RBI’s for the Orioles this season. The projected starter for Baltimore is Jordan Lyles, who is 2-2 with a 4.50 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP over 26 innings pitched this season.
Kansas City is 7-16 in their last 23 Saturday games and 2-7 in their last 9 road games. The over is 5-2-1 in Kansas City’s last 8 games. Baltimore is 24-59 in their last 83 games and 34-74 in their last 108 Saturday games. The under is 17-5-1 in Baltimore’s last 23 home games. The under is 4-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.
This is a pitching matchup between two pitchers that are not very strong. On the offensive side, Kansas City has not been good this season and has been a big part of their recent struggles. Baltimore has the slightly better pitcher and he is coming off of an outing where he allowed one run over 6 innings. I like the Orioles here.
