The MLB is back in action today as the Kansas City Royals will clash with the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio. This is game two of a three-game series. The Indians took game one of this series by a score of 4-1.
Kansas City Royals Form
The Royals are another team that will not play in the playoffs this season.
The harsh reality is that the Royals have another bad team on their hands. For example, they managed to score only one run in two games against a team like the Orioles. Moreover, they have an average of 2.00 runs per game in their last 9 games which is a poor record. Also, the Royals are at 21-45 on the road for the year. And the only positive is that they have some younger talent in their ranks that shows good potential.
On the offensive side of the game, the Royals score an average of 4.21 runs per game which is the 28th record in the league in scoring. Also, they are 26th in hitting at .242 and 28th in homers with 128. On the mound, they are 24th in the league in ERA at 5.00, while also ranking 28th in WHIP at 1.46 and 28th in K’s with 988.
Cleveland Indians Form
The Indians are still in the battle for the top spot in the Central Division and a playoff spot. However, they took a step back as they lost 3 games against the Mets. Moreover, the Indians only scored 5 runs in the process. Additionally, Cleveland is struggling lately as their recent offensive record stands at 2.25 runs per game in the last 4 MLB games.
On the offensive side of the game, the Indians score an average of 4.68 runs per game. Also, they are ranking 16th in hitting at .251 and 19th in homers with 177. On the mound, they are 3rd in the league in ERA at 3.71, while also ranking 4th in WHIP at 1.21 and 5th in K’s with 1196.
The Royals are in a poor form at the moment and there are no signs that they will improve. And on the other side, the Indians need to keep winning in order to stay in the race for a wildcard slot. After the defeats from the Mets, it is imperative for Cleveland to win these games against teams like the Royals. Take the Indians in this one.
