Shane’s Free Pick

The Royals sent Lyles to the mound and that means Kansas City doesn’t have much of a chance to find success in this game. Lucas Giolito sits with an ERA of 3.86 but that number is going to lower against a terrible Royals offense. The White Sox are also going to run up the score against Lyles and this is going to be an easy victory. Back the White Sox on the run line.
