Mike Lundin’s Royals vs. Indians Free Pick
Start Time: August 25, 2017, 7:10 PM
Going for free pick winner #5 in a row!
The Cleveland Indians have 14 of the last 20 in the series and nine of the last 11 meetings with the Kansas City Royals at Progressive Field. This looks like a more than reasonable price on the Tribe in the opener of a three-game series Friday night.
Ryan Merritt (0-0, 3.12 ERA) takes the ball for Cleveland. The 25 year old southpaw will make his fourth appearance for the Indians this season and third spot start. We can note that the Royals are 3-7 in their last 10 games vs. a left-handed starter and Merritt is backed up by the best bullpen in the American League (3.05 ERA) if things were to go awry.
The Royals turn to a left-hander of their own in Jason Vargas (14-7, 3.59 ERA). He was tagged with four runs on six hits and three walks in 4 2/3 innings against Cleveland on August 19 his last time out. I don’t think he’ll be able to slow down the Tribe this time around either as they scored 13 runs on 18 hits in yesterday’s win against Boston. The Indians are 5-2 in their last seveb home games vs. a left-handed starter.
Note that the Royals are 29-32 on the road this season and the Indians are 9-2 in their last 11 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
My free pick is on the Cleveland Indians ML.
