The Oakland Athletics put a 7-2 beating on the Royals Friday night, KC’s sixth straight defeat. Odds are they’ll lose more than a couple of runs here again on Saturday with 29 year old southpaw Danny Duffy on the mound.
Duffy (2-6, 5.81 ERA) was knocked around for four runs on seven hits (two homers) in five innings of a 9-6 loss at LA Angels his last time out. Royals are 0-6 in Duffy’s last 6 road starts vs. a team with a winning record.
Trevor Cahill (1-2, 2.77 ERA) will take the ball for Oakland. He gave up four runs at Kansas City on June 2, but the right-hander has been dealing home in Oakland all season, allowing just two runs through 28 innings of work for a minuscule 0.64 ERA.
Oakland has covered the runline in each of its last five wins. KC has covered the runline just twice during its current six-game skid.
Free pick on Oakland Athletics -1.5.
