The MLB brings more action on Saturday afternoon as the Kansas City Royals will face the Chicago White Sox in game two of a three-game series from Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, Illinois. The Royals will give the nod to Danny Duffy and the White Sox start this game with Reynaldo Lopez.
Kansas City Royals Form
The Royals are not having a good season. They have only one win in their last five games and it seems that they are playing the worst ball in the league of late. The Royals have averaged 3.67 runs per game and have allowed 5.20 runs per game on the road so far.
Danny Duffy record against the White Sox stands at 7-6 with a 4.55 ERA in 22 games (20 starts), including 4-3 with a 3.12 ERA in 12 games (10 starts) at Guaranteed Rate Field.
On the offensive side of the game, the Royals have been poor this year as they are placed on the 30th place in the league in scoring, putting up 3.53 runs per game, while also being 23rd place in hitting at .240 and 30th spot in homers with a total of 75. On the mound, they are also on the 30th spot in the league in ERA at 5.35, while also being 29th in WHIP at 1.49
Chicago White Sox Form
The Chicago White Sox are also having a poor season. The general expectation was that they will be a more solid team this year, however, that is not the case so far this season. They have won only two games of their last nine games. However, they now have two wins in a row as they beat the Cardinals and the Royals in the first game of this series. The White Sox have averaged 3.91 runs per game and have allowed 4.82 runs per game here at home for the year.
Reynaldo Lopez record against the Royals stands at 2-0 with a 3.28 ERA in four starts. Lopez has gone 3-3 with a 3.05 ERA in 12 starts in his career here at Guaranteed Rate Field.
On the offensive side of the game, the White Sox have been poor this season as they are placed on the 24th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 3.97 runs per game, while also holding the 21st place in hitting at .242 and 21st in homers with a total of 96. On the mound, they have some poor stats as they are placed on the 29th spot in the league in ERA at 4.97, while also being 28th spot in WHIP at 1.48 and 28th place in K’s with 668.
These two teams are having a poor season. However, the Royals and the White Sox can still play for their pride and prestige. The Royals are one of the worst teams in the league and I think that the White Sox will have the upper hand in this game. Go for the White Sox in this one.
