Sunday afternoon brings more action in the MLB as the Boston Red Sox take on the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri in game three of their three-game series. The Sox took game one by a score of 10-5. The Red Sox will start this game with Rick Porcello and the Royals will counter with Jake Junis.
Boston Red Sox Form
The Boston Red Sox are one of the top teams in the league. They are part of a very interesting race for the top spot in their division with the Yankees. On that note, it is important for them to maintain their consistency in order to maintain their top position. The Red Sox won the first game against the Royals with a score of 10-5. Boston continued their domination against the Royals as they won the second game with a score of 15-2. It seems that everything is going right at the moment for Boston. The Red Sox has averaged 4.67 runs per game and has allowed 3.45 runs per game on the road for the year so far.
Rick Porcello record against the Royals stands at 8-8 with a 4.71 ERA in 22 starts, including 6-5 with a 4.62 ERA in 13 starts here at Kauffman Stadium.
On the offensive side of the game, the Red Sox have been in a superior form this season so far as they are placed on the 1st spot in the league in scoring, putting up 5.25 runs per game, while also holding the 1st place in hitting at .267 and 2nd place in homers with a total of 127. On the mound, they have some solid stats as they are placed on the 6th spot in the league in ERA at 3.57, while also being 7th place in WHIP at 1.21 and 3rd place in K’s with 852.
Kansas City Royals Form
The Royals are probably the worst team in the league, together with the Orioles. At the moment, their form is very bad as they have lost their last 8 games. On that note, it is important to emphasize that their offence is not good enough, but their main problem is on the mound as they conceded 25 in the last two games against the Red Sox. The Royals have averaged 3.36 runs per game and have allowed 5.68 runs per game in those games.
On the offensive side, Kansas City has been very poor as they are placed on the 30th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 3.47 runs per game, while also holding the 22nd spot in hitting at .238 and 30th place in homers with a total of 69. On the mound, they have been very poor so far as they are placed on the 30th spot in the league in ERA at 5.23, while also holding on the 28th place in WHIP at 1.45 and 30th spot in K’s with 608.
The Red Sox are one of the best teams in the league and it seems like they are unstoppable at the moment. They were dominant in the first two games and I can’t see them slipping in this game. On the other hand, the Royals are very poor this season and their form is not so good at the moment. Go for a Red Sox win.
