Miami Marlins vs Kansas City Royals Prediction 

Kansas City continues to really struggle over the last two weeks and their offense has disappeared. The Royals were one of the best run scoring teams in baseball to start the season, but they have gone cold recently. Despite the recent struggles for Kansas City, they are still 26-15 at home, while Miami is 12-24 on the road. The Marlins are dealing with a lot of injuries to their pitching staff, so they are calling up Bellozo, who probably is not ready to be in the MLB just yet. This is a great chance for the Kansas City offense to wake up and I think they are going to have a big day. My Miami Marlins vs Kansas City Royals prediction is for the Royals to win by at least two runs.
