The MLB is back in action on Wednesday afternoon as the Kansas City Royals will clash with the Minnesota Twins in game three of a three-game series from Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. The Royals will start this game with Burch Smith and the Twins will give the nod to Lance Lynn.
Kansas City Royals Form
The Kansas City Royals just ended their nine games losing streak. They were able to surprise many as they beat the Twins in the last game with a score of 9-4. However, this win does not change the fact that the Royals are a bad team this season. It seems that their pitching and their offence is not good enough to make a turnaround this season. The Royals have averaged 3.52 runs per game and have allowed 5.16 runs per game on the road so far.
On the offensive side of the game, the Royals have been poor as they are placed on the 30th place in the league in scoring, putting up 3.46 runs per game, while also holding the 23rd place in hitting at .238 and 30th place in homers with a total of 70. On the mound, they also have poor stats as they are placed on the 30th place in the league in ERA at 5.33, while also holding the 29th place in WHIP at 1.49 and 30th spot in K’s with 630.
Minnesota Twins Form
The Minnesota Twins are solid this season as they are placed on the 2nd place in the American League Central. The Twins will aim to reach the first spot in the division and games against teams like the Royals are a must win for them. However, they made a step back as they lost the last game with a score of 9-4. The Twins were surprised by the Royals and that defeat will surely be on their minds before the start of this game
The Twins have averaged 4.22 runs per game and have allowed 4.04 runs per game here at home so far.
Lance Lynn record against the Royals stands at 1-1 with a 5.04 ERA in five starts.
On the offensive side of the game, the Twins are below average this season as they are placed on the 21st place in the league in scoring, putting up 4.31 runs per game, while also holding the 22nd place in hitting at .239 and 23rd spot in homers with a total of 91. On the mound, they are placed on the 19th spot in the league in ERA at 4.29, while also holding the 21st spot in WHIP at 1.35 and 13th place in K’s with 789.
The Royals are not having a good season. It seems that they cannot find the right balance which can be seen in their results this year. On the other side, the Twins are struggling a bit lately and their latest defeat against the Royals just showed that the they are getting a bit tired. However, Minnesota are the better team and I think that they will bounce back from the latest disappointment. Go for the Twins in this one.
