The Minnesota Twins are traveling to Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri to face off against the Kansas City Royals. The Twins are starting left hander, Devin Smeltzer. Smeltzer is 1-0 on the year with an 11.57 ERA. The Kansas City Royals are starting right-handed pitcher, Jakob Junis. Junis is 0-0 this year with a 4.15 ERA.

The Minnesota Twins are off to a hot start this year, going 10-3 in their first 13 games. The Twins are led by DH, Nelson Cruz. Cruz has 3 HR and 14 RBIs; he is also batting .373 this year. Cruz is leading Minnesota in both batting average and RBIs this year. The Twins are looking forward to a favorable matchup against the struggling Royals.

The Kansas City Royals are off to a terrible start to the season, going 3-10 in their first 13 games. The Royals bats are led by second basemen, Whit Merrifield. Merrifield is leading Kansas City in batting average, homeruns, and RBIs. He is batting .283, 3 HR, and 9 RBIs. Without Merrifield, the Royals have looked terrible in the batter’s box.

Over 9 Runs

In this matchup I like the Minnesota Twins to blow up for bunches of runs. The Twins have looked good this year and will be able to hit the ball very well against Junis. The Royals have been struggling hitting this year and Smeltzer will be able to find his grove. Final score prediction, Minnesota Twins will win but like the over as top play 9-4.
