The MLB is back on Saturday afternoon as the Kansas City Royals will clash with the Detroit Tigers in game two of their three-game series from Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan. The Royals were the better team last year as they took 11 of the 19 games between against the Tigers. In this game, the Royals will give a start to Danny Duffy and on the other side, the Tigers will start the game with Mike Fiers.
Kansas Royals Form
The Royals did have a good start this year as won just three of their first 16 games. Based on these early stats, it seems that they will have a difficult season. Kansas lost their last eight games in a row and they are 23rd in the league in errors with 12. The Royals have been outscored by 4.38 runs per game during those eight defeats.
On the offensive side of the game, the Royals has been a poor offensive team as they are placed on the 28th spot in the league in scoring, putting an average of 3.16 runs per game, while holding the 16th spot in hitting at .237 and 28th in homers with 11. On the mound, the Royals are in poor form as they are placed on the 28th spot in the league in ERA at 5.22, while also ranking 23rd in WHIP at 1.41 and 28th in K’s with 122.
Detroit Tigers Form
The Detroit Tigers have not been good this season and the reason for that is their poor pitching so far this year. Their offense was average so far, but there were some positive signs as the Tigers have averaged 9.75 runs per game over their last four games. On the offensive side of the game, the Tigers form has been average far as they come are placed on the 14th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.50 runs per game, while also ranking 9th in hitting at .246 and 26th in homers with 12. On the mound, their stats are not that great as they head to this game being placed on the 17th spot in the league in ERA at 4.16, while also ranking 12th in WHIP at 1.28 and 27th in K’s with 124.
All in all, both of these teams are not so good this year. Moreover, it seems that they will not be part of the playoff conversation this season. However, based on the stats and the recent form, the Tigers are the better team. I go for the Tigers to win in this one against a struggling team.
