The Kansas City pitching staff has a 4.75 ERA, a 1.48 WHIP, and a .270 opponent batting average this season. The Royals offense has scored 532 runs with a .245 batting average and a .308 on base percentage. Bobby Witt is batting .248 with 20 home runs and 69 RBI’s for the Royals this season. The projected starter for Kansas City is Max Castillo, who is 0-1 with a 2.81 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP over 25.2 innings pitched this season.

The Detroit Tigers are 51-82 this season and have lost four of their last five games. Detroit won Game 1 of this series by a score of 5-4 on Friday night. The Detroit pitching staff has a 4.11 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and a .248 opponent batting average this season. The Tigers offense has scored 438 runs with a .229 batting average and a .285 on base percentage this year. Javier Baez is batting .227 with 12 home runs and 49 RBI’s for the Tigers this season. The projected starter for Detroit is Matt Manning, who is 1-2 with a 3.79 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP over 40.1 innings pitched this season.

Kansas City is 5-1 in their last 6 Sunday games and 22-44 in their last 66 road games. The under is 4-1 in Kansas City’s last 5 game three’s of a series. Detroit is 25-51 in their last 76 Sunday games and 15-35 in their last 50 games. The under is 9-3-2 in Detroit’s last 14 home games. The under is 27-12-1 in these two teams last 40 head to head meetings.

These two teams are at the bottom of the AL Central and are two out of the three worst teams in the American League. Detroit is starting Matt Manning, who got roughed up in his last outing. For the Royals, Max Castillo is getting called up and will make his first appearance since August 18th. Matt Manning has been inconsistent this season, so it is tough to tell if we are going to get the good version of him or not. I like the Royals in this game.
