The Kansas City Royals are facing off against the Cleveland Indians. The Indians took care of business in their last two games against the Royals where thoroughly beaten with a score of 15-1 in the two-game stretch. Prior to those losses, the Royals were able to sneak a 2-1 win late in the game, but even in that game, the Indians were able to record more hits in total.

Brad Keller will be starting for the Kansas City Royals and he has been terrific with a 2-1 record in 5 starts with a 1.93 ERA. Zach Plesac will get the start from the Cleveland Indians, Plesac is 2-1 in 4 starts with a 1.33 ERA along with thirty strikeouts. This will be Plesac's second game back since being suspended by the team, in his first game back Zach Plesacthrew 6 SO's, and gave up 1 run in six innings.

In Keller's last start, Keller was able to keep the game in reach while his team struggled against Shane Bieber. After Bieber checked out of the game Brad Keller gave up his only run of the game and with Bieber out the Royals were able to get the win, I think this game will be very similar to that game to I'll take the under along with a potential win from the underdog.
