Preview

The Kansas City Royals and the Baltimore Orioles will play the 2nd game of the series at the Ewing M. Kauffman Stadium on Friday night. The Royals took the win 7-5 Thursday to take the lead on the series and they're now 2-2 against the Orioles this season.

Baltimore Orioles

The Orioles get here with a 24-34 record and have lost 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 3.93 runs while allowing 4.53 runs per game. Anthony Santander leads the team with 9 home runs and 30 RBI. Mancini is batting for a .303 avg

Jordan Lyles allowed six runs, eight hits and three walks over five innings agaisnt the Royals.

Probable Pitcher:

Bruce Zimmermann (2-4, 4.87 ERA) will be on the mound for the Orioles in the 2nd game of the series. Zimmermann gave up 5 runs on 10 hits over 5.2 innings Friday, striking out one and taking a loss vs the Guardians. He already faced the Royals earlier this season and earned the win allowing 2 runs and striking out 5 across 6 innings pitched.

Kansas City Royals

The Royals get here with a 19-37 record and have lost 7 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 3.75 runs and allowing 5.27 runs per game. Andrew Benitendi is batting for a .321 AVG. and 18 RBI while Salvador Perez has 8 home runs and 22 RBI.

Daniel Lynch leads the team with a 5.36 ERA, 43 strikeouts and 2 wins recorded for the Royals.

Probable Pitcher: Jonathan Heasley (0-3, 4.62 ERA)

Heasley will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Royals. Heasley allowed 3 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks with 5 strikeouts across 6 innings pitched in the loss Sunday against the Astros. He hasn't pitched against the Orioles yet.

BETTING TRENDS

Baltimore are 6-13 SU in their last 19 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of Baltimore's last 11 games when playing on the road against Kansas City

Kansas City are 5-15 SU in their last 20 games.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of Kansas City's last 11 games at home.

Prediction

The Royals beat the Orioles at home but they're still 5-15 in their last 20 games and only 11-19 at home. They have lost in all of Heasley's starts this season so it's hard to trust them to win again. The Orioles will send another struggling pitcher for this game, Zimmerman has allowed 15 runs in his last 3 starts with 2 losses and a no decision. I definitely like the over on this one.

PICK: Over 9.5 (-110)
