Kansas City vs Houston: Division Leaders Clash in the Lone Star State
Kansas City Royals: Show Me State Crew leads the AL Central
Proving their magical run during the 2014 MLB season wasn’t a fluke; Kansas City is sporting a solid 44-28 record. The Royals are on a 10-3 recent roll and they have a 5.5 game lead on the Minnesota Twins in the AL Central division. Promoted from the bullpen, to replace injured starters Jason Varga and Yordano Ventura, RHP Joe Blanton (2-0 ERA 1.73) will make a third straight start tonight. Blanton has been solid, as he’s allowed just two runs over eleven innings during his two starts.
Houston Astros: Surprisingly solid ‘Stros continue to lead the AL West
Though they have stumbled some, with a 13-14 June record, Houston still leads the AL West as the Astros are four games clear of the Los Angeles Angels. Houston split a four-game series with the New York Yankees on the weekend – winning two games by a 7-1 margin while losing two by a 12-8 count. Rookie RHP Lance McCullers (3-2 ERA 2.33) looks to close out a solid June as he is 2-2 and has given up just 10 earned runs over 31.1 innings pitched during five starts this month.
Houston vs Kansas City Call: Mindful that we haven’t reached the halfway point of the 2015 MLB season, there will be a playoff feel in the Texas air when these two division leaders clash tonight. Although an outright win by the Royals wouldn’t surprise us – we are taking what the bookmakers are giving us here.
