Kansas City Royals vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

I’ll stay with the Royals. Lugo is pitching well right now. Over his last three starts Lugo is 1-0 with 18.2 innings and just two earned runs on 12 hits and six walks. As for Gomber, he’s been pretty choppy over his last trio with 13 earned runs in 18.0 innings total.

On Friday the Royals were tagged for a couple of runs in the eighth (off John Schreiber) and couldn’t keep the pace on the scoreboard after blowing a 2-1 lead. Still, KC should be set up well Saturday if Lugo can keep his run going.
