The Milwaukee Brewers and the Kansas City Royals meet today in the final of their three game series in Kansas City. All MLB odds can be found by visiting Bovada sportsbook.
The Royals looked to be headed to a loss yesterday but they battled back late to pull out a win in extra innings. The Royals scored 4 runs on 10 hits and on the mound Johnathan Sanchez did enough to keep the Royals in the game as they won in extras. Today Kansas City turns to Luke Hochevar who is coming off losses in his last four decisions. He is pitching to a 6.57 ERA thus far this season and will be looking to get back on track today.
To say the Brewers let one slip away yesterday is an understatement. They blew a two run lead in the ninth inning and then walked in the winning run in extra innings. They scattered 13 hits yesterday, but could only amass three runs. Today the Brewers will send Sean Marcum to the mound who has actually won his last three starts. In the process he has lowered his ERA and has only allowed 66 hits in 74 innings of work this season.
Kansas City is 10-21 in their last 31 home games, 2-4 in their last six games overall, and 1-4 in Hochevar’s last five starts. Milwaukee is 5-2 in their last seven game three of a series, 2-7 in their last nine games as a road favorite, and 1-4 in Marcum’s last five road starts. Milwaukee is 1-5 in their last six games in Kansas City.
