Kansas City Royals vs Cleveland Indians. The MLB pick for this game goes to the Cleveland Indians.  Cleveland has a good chance to score here with Keller on the mound.  Although Keller posted five hits and two earned in 6.1 innings when he started against the Twins, Keller gave up 26 earned runs in his five starts before that game on July 4.  Cleveland should be able to replicate the opener win.  Taking the game at home is the Cleveland Indians.  Final Score Prediction is 6-4.
