On the hitting side, The Royals have a .303 wOBA, .306 OBP, .388 SLG, .694 OPS, 91 wRC+, & 57 HRs. The Athletics have a .316 wOBA, .316 OBP, .408 SLG, .724 OPS, 107 wRC+, & 77 HRs.

Although Mike Minor (Royals) is the better starting pitcher I don't think the difference is enough for Minor to stop the bats from running up the score. Athletics to win!
