Kansas City Still Going Through 2023 Disaster

If the Oakland Athletics were not in Major League Baseball, the Kansas City Royals would be the talk of the league. It would be in a bad way with the worst record in all of baseball.

The Yankees are struggling to score, as they have just eight runs in their last four games. In fact, the Royals have just 13 total runs in their last seven losses.

Salvador Perez and Bobby Witt continue to play in Kansas City, but both are continuing to be part of loss after loss. Perez has a.249 batting average, while Witt is hitting .247 and has 16 home runs on the season.

Jordan Lyles is going to get the start in this game. The 32-year-old has had a tough season with just one win on the season. He is 1-1, with a 6.05 earned run average.

Lyles has struck out 73 batters in 102.2 innings. He has been fairly strong recently, with 29 innings pitched over his last five games, and allowed just 13 runs.

Yankees Finding Help Throughout

In the win over the Royals on Friday, Billy McKinney hit a three-run home run to make the difference in the game. On Saturday, the Yankees used three runs batted in from Giancarlo Stanton, including a two-run home run in the 8th inning. The Yankees need all the help they can get on offense, as they have dropped to 19th in all of baseball in runs scored.

New York is one of the worst-hitting teams in the league, with a .229 batting average. Gleber Torres is the top hitter on the season, but just .263 on the season. The Yankees still remain without Aaron Judge, who remains on the injured list. He still leads the team with 19 home runs.

Luis Severino is the starting pitcher for the New York Yankees. Severino is 29 years old and from the Dominican Republic. He is 1-4 on the season, with a 6.66 earned run average.

Severino has made ten starts this season, throwing 48.2 innings, and allowed 36 earned runs. His last start was one of his best, as he held the Angels to just one run through six innings.

Lyles wins his Second

Jordan Lyles has not been that bad lately. Lyles has had a bad season for sure, but his stuff has gotten better. The Yankees are a team that can go quiet with the bats easily. Look for Lyles to pitch six strong and Kansas City to get just enough offense.

We are taking the upset here. Bet the Kansas City Royals +155 over the New York Yankees.
