Kansas City Royals
The Royals' season so far has been a disappointment, with a 7-23 record that places them last in the American League East standings. They have struggled at home, with a 1-13 record. Zack Greinke's 0-4 record with a 6.10 ERA is a significant contributing factor to the team's struggles.

On the other hand, the Royals have struggled to put together a decent performance, with only one win in their last five games. They have also struggled at home, winning just one game in 14 attempts.
The Orioles' solid hitting and pitching performances, along with the Royals' injury issues and poor form, make them the clear favorites. Therefore, our prediction is that the Orioles will win with a final score of 6-2.
