The Kansas City Royals will host the Cincinnati Reds at Ewing M. Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 8:05 P.M, ET. This will be the 2nd game of the double header between interleague teams. The Cincinnati Reds are back after their series against the Pirates was postponed when they faced a Covid 19 related issue. They managed to split their 1st 2 games, before the postponement in game 3. The Reds are in the 11th spot in the National League with a 9-11 record, and are 4th in the NL Central Division.

The Reds are having a disappointing season. The team had a lot of potential over the last few years but never lived up to it. The squad only won 2 of their last 5 games scoring 18 total runs in their last 3, including a blowout win against the Pirates at 8-1. The team is struggling with their offensive output with a batting average at .220 which is 25th in the league, and their 91 runs made this season is 23rd. Their pitching is on the fine line between good and bad compared to other teams with a team earned run average of 4.27 which is 15th in the league. Nicholas Castellanos is carrying the team on his back with 20 hits, 19 runs batted in, and 8 home runs this season. Trevor Bauer will start for the Reds in game 2 of the double header. He has a solid season with a 3-0 record with a 0.93 ERA with 32 strikeouts.

Cincinnati Reds vs Kansas City Royals Predictions 8/19/2020

The Royals is another team who needs some wins as they are sitting on the bottom half of the American League. The Minnesota Twins got their revenge on the squad after the Royals beat them in their 1st series. The Royals got demolished 3-1 in their recent 4 game series. Kansas City won 2 of their last 6 games, and scored only 7 runs in their last 3. The team is led by Whit Merrifield with 27 hits and 16 RBIs, while Maikel Franco chips in 5 home runs this season. The Royals are doing well offensively with a .250 BAA which is 11th in the league, and 22nd with their 93 runs scored. Their bullpen is also doing a good job allowing only 4.02 runs per game which is the 7th best record in the league. The Royals are in 12th place with a record of 9-14, and are 5th in the AL Central Division. Matt Harvey will get the ball for the Royals. He is 3-5 with a 7.09 ERA with 39 strikeouts this season.

Cincinnati Reds vs Kansas City Royals. MLB’s pick for the game will go to the Cincinnati Reds -115. Trevor Bauer is a monster on the mound with only 2 runs and 7 hits allowed in 19.1 innings this season. He is destroying the batters with other teams hitting at .109 when he is pitching. Since there are only 7 innings, Bauer can go the distance to have another stellar game. Matt Harvey is hard to root for as he hasn’t pitched this season yet, and was terrible in the last season. The absence of Salvador Perez for the Royals is another big factor for the team to struggle against Bauer. Cincinnati wins Game 2 in today’s doubleheader predicted at 5-4.
