The Chicago White Sox will play the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium on Monday afternoon.

The Chicago White Sox are 62-59 this season and have lost three of their last four games. Chicago is coming off of a series split against Cleveland, where they won one game and lost one game. The Chicago pitching staff has a 3.98 ERA, a 1.32 WHIP, and a .246 opponent batting average this season. The White Sox offense has scored 509 runs with a .259 batting average and a .313 on base percentage. Jose Abreu is batting .308 with 14 home runs and 58 RBI’s for the White Sox this season. The projected starter for Chicago is Michael Kopech, who is 4-9 with a 3.25 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP over 110.2 innings pitched this season.

The Kansas City Royals are 49-74 this season and have lost six of their last seven games. Kansas City is coming off of a series loss against Tampa Bay, where they lost three out of the four games played. The Kansas City pitching staff has a 4.65 ERA, a 1.46 WHIP, and a .268 opponent batting average. The Royals offense has scored 467 runs with a .242 batting average and a .305 on base percentage this year. Bobby Witt is batting .250 with 16 home runs and 60 RBI’s for the Royals this season. The projected starter for Kansas City is Daniel Lynch, who is 4-8 with a 4.52 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP over 93.2 innings pitched this season.

Chicago is 4-1 in their last 5 games against the AL Central and 1-4 in their last 5 Monday games. The under is 6-0 in Chicago’s last 6 game one’s of a series. Kansas City is 4-1 in their last 5 Monday games and 1-6 in their last 7 games. The under is 4-1 in Kansas City’s last 5 Monday games. The under is 20-7-1 in these two teams last 28 head to head meetings.

These two teams will meet on Monday afternoon for a quick one game series in Kansas City. Chicago is in the hunt for the AL Central Title and will not want to lose a game against the lowly Royals. Both teams have struggled in their last few games, but Kansas City is one of the worst teams in baseball. I like Chicago to win this game by a couple of runs.
