Kansas vs Minnesota by Sors
The hosts scored six or more runs in every of the previous two games of this series against the Minnesota Twins (13 hits on 18 hits) and I expect the same efficiency in offense from Kansas City today, given the fact, that the Twins will send to the mound Mike Pelfrey (0-0 with a 4.50 ERA), who doesn’t have many good memories from his previous three starts against the Royals.
The right-hander went 0-2 with a 9.49 ERA in those three starts, allowing 8 hits and 4 runs, with two walks over four innings in the last of them on July 30, 2013 (2-7).
Mike Moustakas is 3-for-6, with a homer, 4 RBI and a walk against him, Salvador Perez is 4-for-8, with 2 RBI, Eric Hosmer is 3-for-6, with 1 RBI and a walk, Omar Infante is 16-for-39, with 3 RBI and 3 walks, while Lorenzo Cain is 3-for-7, with two walks.
Minnesota’s bullpen posted a 4.50 ERA in the previous fourteen games this season.
I think that Kansas City will score at least five runs in the final game of this series.
