The Houston Astros and Kansas City Royals face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Kaufmann Stadium. The two teams have split the first two games of this series.
The Astros come into this game with a 34-19 record overall but they didn’t look good on Saturday. The offense couldn’t get anything going, and the pitching gave up six runs on the way to the defeat. The strength of the team all season has been the pitching and they are giving up only 3.27 runs per game. Yordan Alveraz is having a big season hitting 15 home runs and driving in 33 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Royals who sit with a 17-34 record and even Saturday’s win was a bit surprising. The Royals are averaging 3.75 runs per game which 26th overall. There has been way too many games where they were shut out or only scored a run. Bobby Witt has hit seven home runs and driven in 28 RBIs.
On the mound for the Astros is Framber Valdez who sits with a 5-2 record and an ERA of 2.57. In his last start against Oakland, he went nine innings, giving up two this and one run.
On the mound for the Royals is Jonathan Heasley who sits with an 0-2 record and an ERA of 4.66. In his last start against Cleveland, he went six innings giving up six hits and three earned runs.
The Royals are 1-5 in their last six home games. The Astros are 5-1 in their last five road games. The under is 6-0 in Valdez’s last six road starts. The under is 5-0 in the Astros last five Sunday games.
The Royals might have won on Saturday, but this is going to be different. Heasley has struggled this season and he won’t start to find success in this game. The Astros are going to score at least six runs here and secure the victory. Back the Astros on the run line.
