The Kansas City Royals and the Seattle Mariners will meet for game three other series tonight. All odds for all games can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Royals have lost the first two games against the Mariners and have been giving up a lot of runs in those two games. Their starting pitcher last night lasted just 1.2 innings to take the loss. Bruce Chen will try to right the pitching staff tonight, but he himself has let up six earned runs each of his last three starts. This recent stretch has ballooned his ERA to 5.50.
The Mariners have not thrown in the towel on the season and are still playing hard. They scored 9 runs on 14 his last night which was enough to get Blake Beavan the win. Kevin Milwood starts tonight and although he is coming off three straight losses he is having a solid season overall allowing just 91 hits in 97 innings.
Kansas City is 1-7 in their last eight games, 0-6 in their last six games against a team with a losing record, and 4-1 in Chen’s last five home starts. Seattle is 29-68 in their last 97 games against a left handed starter, 5-15 in their last 20 road games against a team with a losing record, and 0-4 in Millwood’s last four starts.
Although we like how Millwood has been pitching overall, we cannot ignore how bad Chen has been. Let’s take over for total runs scored in this game so pick up sportsbook promo codes.
