Minnesota Twins vs Kansas City Royals Predictions 5/22/2022

 

Kansas City lost their second consecutive game and fourth in the last six after failing to make a comeback in the first match of the series on Friday night.

 

The Royals were fourth in the AL Central heading into Saturday’s action, 8.5 games behind the Twins for the division lead. Kansas City was behind 3-0 after half an inning in Friday’s game and couldn’t rally.

 

On the mound, Daniel Lynch (2-3) came up short after allowing four runs on five hits in 3.2 innings of work with two walks and two strikeouts.

 

In the ninth inning, the Royals seemed to have the tying run on base and the winning run at the plate before Andrew Benintendi strikeout to end the game.

 

In this game, Jonathan Heasley will make his third appearance of the year for the Royals. In 8.1 innings of action this year, he is 0-2 with a 4.32 ERA, 1.80 WHIP, seven walks, and two strikeouts. Heasley’s most recent start was against the White Sox in the opening game of a doubleheader on Tuesday afternoon.

 

In a 3-0 Royals defeat, he pitched five innings, giving three runs on four hits with three walks and one strikeout.

 

  • The Kansas City Royals are 2-5 SU in their last 7 matches.
  • Kansas City is 3-10 SU in their last 13 matches at home.
  • The Kansas City Royals are 4-12 SU in their last 16 matches in the American League.

Minnesota Twins vs Kansas City Royals. The MLB pick for this game is the Minnesota Twins. Kansas City suffered in the first game of this series, as their inability to get critical hits once again doomed them. Benintendi struck out trying to end the game with a 3-0 count in the bottom of the ninth.

 

When it comes down to brass tacks, Heasley was better in his second start of the year than he was in his first, but it doesn’t mean much. Ober was throwing well before going on the disabled list with a groin issue, and he’ll want to go back to that level of performance.

 

The Twins are the superior club, and the Royals’ hitting (or lack thereof) makes it difficult to favor them here. Minnesota will win the series if they win the finale. The Minnesota Twins will win to a predicted score of 5-2.
