Nelson Velazquez also has a team-high 39 strikeouts while Witt Jr. has a team-high 15 stolen bases and Maikel Garcia has 4 home runs, 24 RBIs and 9 stolen bases this season.

  • The Royals have won each of their last four games as road underdogs against AL West opponents.

Seattle Mariners Recap

The Seattle Mariners will be looking to build on their series win over Oakland after knocking off the A’s 8-4 in Sunday’s finale, giving the Mariners their first series win in a little while after losing their series to the Twins to start last week and settling for a split with the Astros in the series before that.

Mariners Still Looking To Pick Up Momentum At The Dish

Julio Rodriguez leads the Mariners with 41 hits including a .255 batting average and also has 5 doubles. Cal Raleigh has a team-high 10 home runs along with 23 RBIs while Jorge Polanco has 5 home runs with 13 RBIs and a team-high 52 strikeouts.

Royals vs. Mariners Prediction

I’m on the Royals here. I just think there’s value here with Kansas City in a game that I feel should truly be priced as a coin flip. The Royals have been on a nice run as of late and the Mariners just have been inconsistent more than anything else. Kansas City’s been a team that has been able to provide value all year long and I think that we’re getting value once again here against a pitcher in Kirby who has had strong stuff but struggled in his lone career appearance against the Royals, who are a much better and confident team since the last time they squared off. Give me Kansas City here.
