Kansas City Royals and Los Angeles Angels meet on Sunday in MLB action at Angel Stadium.
Kansas City Royals can use a win after losing six of their last seven matches. Royals have allowed 27 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 matches. The Kansas City Royals have lost nine of their last 11 games when they allow four or more runs. Offensive, Whit Merrifield Royals leads with 56 hits and 22 RBI while Adalberto Mondesi and Hunter Dozier have combined for 96 hits and 61 RBI. Danny Duffy gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 3.97 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. Duffy is 2-2 with a 4.25 ERA and 17 strikeouts in his career against Angels.
Los Angeles Angels are looking for a victory after winning six of their last nine games. The angels have made 1
8 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 12 matches. Los Angeles Angels have won seven of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Andrelton Simmons leads the angels with 55 hits and 21 RBI while David Fletcher and Mike Trout have combined for 85 hits and 43 RBI. Tyler Skaggs gets the ball, and he’s 4-3 with a 5.05 ERA and 33 strikeouts this season. Skaggs is 2-1 with a 0.35 ERA and 27 strikeouts in his career against Royals.
The Royals are 20-53 in their last 73 road games, 12-49 in their last 61 during match 3 in a series and 6-2 in Duffy’s last 8 starts with 4 days rest. The Angels are 5-2 in their last 7 home teams, 12-4 in their last 16 vs American League Central and 5-1 in Skaggs last 6 start during match 3 in a series. The Royals are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles and 2-9 in the last 11 meetings. The basis is 6-1-2 in Skaggs last 9 starts in total. The takeover is 6-2-1 in Duffy’s last 9 starts in total.
The Kansas City Royals continue to be drilled, and probably not much better with Duffy on the pile. In 22.2 innings this season, Duffy has allowed 24 hits and 10 runs while he was eight. Skaggs has also had their problems this season, but he has been much better at home where he has an ERA of 2.19, and he has at least a confident and intimidating crime to get him back if things go south. The Los Angeles Angels are playing an impressive ball right now and swinging a hot bat. The Kansas City Royals are heading in the completely opposite direction and remains one of the worst laws in terms of burns. Give me the angels again.
