The Kansas City Royals had a opportunity to overcome the New York Mets in their three-game series on the weekend, however, let things to get away on Sunday afternoon. Going to the 7th inning with a 4-3 lead, the Mets poured it with 6 runs to go ahead comfortably by a score of 9-4. They’d finally go on to get a 11-5 victory Sunday afternoon. What looked like was going to be quite a near one turned into a blowout for the Mets.
When the Mets’ bats are moving just like that down the stretch, then you may want to pen them into the postseason. The crime is their big question mark, which has been an inconsistent unit about them from 2019. Pitching wise, it’s difficult to bet against the rotation they must throw at hitters.
The Royals proceed with a visit to Baltimore to get a meaningless run from the Orioles. Meaningless in the feeling that this game doesn’t have any impact on the postseason. It’s basically a glorified spring training game, with the Royals and Orioles taking a look at some of their younger gift. They scouting for a 2020 starting lineup. Don’t expect too much advancement from either side next season, though.
Baltimore are getting a good look at John Means, since the newcomer will be getting his 24th appearance at Camden Yards tonight. He pitched in 3.1 innings to get a taste of major league action last season. This year, with a opening at the rotation, the Orioles have contributed Means an elongated chance as a beginner.
In general, he’s been decent for a rookie, but we’ve been seeing him struggle recently. We’ll see what he can perform against the Royals tonight at home in Baltimore. The Royals will seem to Jorge Lopez, that has defended his previous high of seven starts in a season.
Lopez is going to be expected to make his 31st look and 12th start in 2019 tonight. He has not been great, but Lopez is a body that the Royals can throw out there in this season. Head below for our free Royals vs. Orioles select.

John Means is attempting to keep it together down the stretch. He had been pitching so well this season, particularly for a beginner, but Means has just found out that beating big league hitting isn’t likely to be easy all the time. It can be a marathon for a whole lot of young pitchers who aren’t utilised to pitching this considerably contrary to the top hitters on the planet. Means was throttled in his latest excursions, both of which came from the Yankees.
So, he will not have to confront a lineup like the Yankees here, but his confidence was shaken because of these. Means allowed 10 earned runs in 7.1 innings of play, with the Yanks winning by scores of 14-2 and 8-3. He was also struggling three excursions back from the Diamondbacks.
Means yielded 6 hits and 3 earned runs in 3.1 innings. He hasn’t made it beyond 3 innings since July 19th from the Red Sox. This is his first appearance at the Royals in his profession. Means should be receiving plenty of run support from Jorge Lopez tonight, so that he might not need a stellar performance to get a Baltimore triumph Monday. We know he probably isn’t likely to find much assistance from the bullpen, that are dead last in the world with a 6.08 ERA. Lopez will be hunting just his second win of the year tonight at Camden Yards.
Lopez has had opportunities to stay in a rotation because 2015, however, was never able to find the business done. Nothing has changed in 2019 due to him personally , as he looks like a guy who belongs to the minors. Lopez enters Monday with a 6.51 ERA along with 1.55 WHIP. He’s been punished for a 15.75 ERA, 2.62 WHIP, along with .511 OBA within his past three starts.
Lopez has spent most of his time at the bullpen this season and has been encouraged in his latest look to start from the Tigers. He was lost because he was exposed to 4 earned runs in 1.1 innings. Baltimore are hitting .429 using a .500 OBP in 7 at-bats against Lopez. The 26-year-old likely isn’t likely to suddenly find out it from Baltimore tonight. This looks like a great place for a OVER ticket to cash.
