Kansas City Royals vs. Toronto Blue Jays, last game of that long series, the Blue Jays have the advantage with two wins, tonight it is decided if the series is for the visitors or the home team manages to tie the series 2-2. At home everything has been complicated for the Royals, the team has not won a series since July when they swept the Twins.
Toronto Blue Jays: We are better and stronger.
The Blue Jays have a better record compared to the Royals, but that does not mean they had a good season. So far the Blue Jays on the road have a record of 26 wins and 33 losses, a negative record with 44.1% of effectiveness. The first game of this series was for the home team, 1-3, but the second and third games ended with the same result 6-5 and 6-5. In the last 10 games on the road, the Blue Jays are 5-5, before this series had already won the series of four games against the Mariners 3-1.
Sam Gaviglio will take action tonight against the Royals, has not been his best year with 2 wins and 5 losses, plus Gaviglio has not won any game of the last four on the road. This is the weak point of the Blue Jays tonight. The team has a good average of 4.51 runs per game, 8.20 hits and up to 1.36 homeruns.
Kansas City Royals: No luck at home.
This season has been one of the worst for the Royals, low performance combined with a heavy work from the mound. 17 wins and 44 losses at home, the effect is only 27.9%. At the start of the season, the Royals lost 12 games of the first 13, the first winning series at home was in May against the Tigers. In the last 10 games at home, the Royals have won only two and were swept by the Cardinals before this series against the Blue Jays.
Glenn Sparkman is new to the Royals, he just signed a contract last year and so far has only one loss with 5.06 ERA and 1,625 WHIP. Sparkman played with the Blue Jays but was never in the mound defending the team. The average home runs is disappointing, 3.48 runs per game, 8.02 hits and 0.67 home runs.
