The Kansas City Royals and the Chicago White Sox will play the 4th game of the series at the Ewing M. Kauffman Stadium on Wednesday. The Royals took the win 8-3 and took the lead 2-1 on the series. MJ Melendez hit a tiebreaking homer in the seventh inning to send the Kansas City Royals past the White Sox.

They're batting for .259 AVG, 454 runs scored in 938 hits and 91 home runs, ranking #17 in offense in the league behind the Cleveland Guardians.

Dylan Cease (12-4, 1.98 ERA) will be on the mound for the White Sox in the 4th game of the series. Cease allowed one run on two hits and three walks over six innings Friday, striking out five and earning a win over the Rangers. He has a record of 4-2 with an ERA of 2.69 and 70 strikeouts in 11 appearances versus the Royals in his career.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals get to this game with a 46-66 record and have won 4 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 3.91 runs per game. They're batting for .246 AVG, 394 runs scored in 848 hits and 82 home runs, ranking #24 in offense in the league behind the Seattle Mariners. Bobby Witt Jr is batting for a .255 AVG. 51 RBI and 14 home runs.

Zack Greinke (3-7, 4.58 ERA) will be on the mound for the Royals in the 4th game of the series. Greinke allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks with two strikeouts in 4.2 innings Friday, taking the loss versus the Red Sox. He is 1-3 with an ERA of 2.72 and 28 strikeouts in 7 appearances versus the Royals in his career.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Chi White Sox's last 9 games on the road.
The total has gone UNDER in 11 of Chi White Sox's last 15 games when playing on the road against Kansas City.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Kansas City's last 6 games against Chi White Sox.
Kansas City Royals are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games at home.
The first two games of this series were close but the Royals offense exploded in the 3rd game scoring 8 runs to beat the White Sox but I don't expect that to happen again as the White Sox will send Dylan Cease to the mound to close this series. Cease has been insane this season and hasn't allowed more than 1 run in each of his last 13 games starting. Zack Greinke will start for the Royals who has struggled this season but has good numbers against the White Sox in his career. Cease will have another solid start but with the White Sox strugglin offensively I think the best play is the under.
PICK: Under 8 (-110)
