The under is 5-1 in Kansas City’s last 6 game three’s of a series. San Diego is 10-4 in these two teams last 14 head to head meetings.
These two teams are trending in opposite directions with Kansas City being one of the worst teams in baseball. Kansas City has really struggled with their pitching this season and will start Jonathan Heasley in this game. Heasley has allowed 14 earned runs over his last 14.2 innings pitched. For the Padres, Sean Manaea has allowed seven earned runs over his last 16 innings pitched. I think we should see a good amount of runs in this game and I am taking the over.
