Royals Preview

The Kansas City Royals are 12-28 this season and they have won four of their last six games. Prior to losing the first game in this series, Kansas City won three out of four games against the White Sox. The Kansas City pitching staff has a 5.36 ERA, a 1.45 WHIP, and a .267 opponent batting average this year. The Royals offense has scored 164 runs with a .236 batting average and a .300 on base percentage. Vinnie Pasquantino is batting .284 with seven home runs and 19 RBI’s for the Royals. The projected starting pitcher for Kansas City is Zack Greinke, who is 1-4 with a 5.18 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP over 41.2 innings pitched this season.

Brewers Preview

The Milwaukee Brewers are 21-17 this season and they have lost eight of their last eleven games. Milwaukee won the first game in this series by a score of 5-1 on Friday night. The Milwaukee pitching staff has a 3.67 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a .236 opponent batting average. The Brewers offense has scored 166 runs with a .242 batting average and a .319 on base percentage this year. Rowdy Tellez is batting .241 with 10 home runs and 23 RBI’s for the Brewers. The projected starting pitcher for Milwaukee is Adrian Houser, who is 0-0 with a 3.86 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP over 4.2 innings pitched this season.


Kansas City is 15-37 in their last 52 games and 1-8 in their last 9 interleague games. The under is 4-1 in Kansas City’s last 5 game two’s of a series. Milwaukee is 5-1 in their last 6 interleague home games and 4-8 in their last 12 games. The over is 5-3 in Milwaukee’s last 8 games. The under is 21-8 in these two teams last 29 head to head meetings. 


The Brewers came into this series struggling over the last two weeks, but they were able to win Game 1 and will look to make it two in a row over the Royals here. Kansas City has been one of the worst teams in baseball this year and their pitching has been horrible. The Royals will start Zack Greinke, who has allowed 10 earned runs over his last 14.1 innings pitched. The Brewers will turn to Adrian Houser, who was shaky in his first start of the year against the Giants. I am taking the Brewers at home here and I expect Houser to pitch much better.
