Orioles vs Royals Prediction

Wow, we’ve really reached a point where Baltimore and Kansas City arguably represent the two top teams in the AL, and although the visitors will have revenge in mind, there’s something really special brewing on the hosts’ side. The Royals find themselves in the same spot the O’s were in last season, as early season overachievers, and I believe they’re just as real. KC has come out strong, and I like them in what should be a much closer contest here in game two. Back Kansas City for this AL battle.
