Royals at rangers
The Kansas City Royals are taking on the Texas Rangers tonight in the third game of the series between the two sides. The Rangers have taken the first two games of the series with an 11-2 win in game one and an 8-5 extra innings win in game 2.
The Rangers are HOT to start the season as they are sitting at 7-4 with a 6-2 record at home. The Royals have not been great so far this season and they are looking to turn it around and not get swept with a win tonight.
Brad Keller will be on the mound for the Royals tonight and he’s been pretty good for them so far this season. Although his record is 1-1, he has a 2.61 ERA and has only given up three runs all season long. He also has his only win of the season away at San Francisco. Nathan Eovaldi is on the mound for the Rangers tonight and he also has a 1-1 record this season. He has only given up five runs on the season and is sitting with an ERA of 4.22. He showed that he was better on the road though as his ERA while at home is 5.40. The Royals hitting has not been great this year. The starters for their team having an average batting average of .180, so they are looking to get the bats hot. The Rangers have been putting up runs in some of their games this season but tonight they will be without their best batter is Corey Seager after he left Tuesday’s game with a left hamstring injury.
The Rangers have been the much better team so far this season and the Royals have struggles hitting. But without their best batter, I don’t see the Rangers putting up a ton of runs tonight. So here are the picks:
Hammer: Royals/Rangers u9
Hammer: Royals +1.5
Sprinkle: Franmil Reyes o0.5 hits
