Oakland Athletics vs Kansas City Royals Predictions 5/5/2023


As they blanked the Orioles in the middle contest of their three-game series on Wednesday night, Kansas City won for just the second time in seven matches.


The Royals were 9 games out of first place in the AL Central at 8-23 on the season as of Thursday. The Twins were in first place in the division.


On Wednesday, Nick Pratto and Vinnie Pasquantino each had three hits for Kansas City, who went on to win. Kyle Isbel and Michael Massey also contributed two hits apiece.


For the Royals to win, Pasquantino blasted his sixth home run of the year. Zack Greinke (1-4) earned the victory after pitching five innings without surrendering a run while giving up three hits, no walks, and three strikeouts.


In Game 1 of the series, Brad Keller makes his sixth start for the Royals this year. In 30.1 innings of work this season, he is 2-2 with a 3.56 ERA, 1.582 WHIP, 24 walks, and 24 strikeouts.


In his most recent start, against the Twins on the road on Saturday, Keller had no bearing on the decision.


He pitched 5.1 innings in a game the Royals eventually won 3-2, giving up one run on six hits while walking five and striking out four.


  • The total went OVER in 4 of Kansas City’s last 6 matches.

Oakland Athletics vs Kansas City Royals. The MLB pick for this game is the Kansas City Royals.


The fans are now looking at a showdown between two clubs that, more than a month into the season, are yet to win more than ten games.


Muller had trouble as the A’s appear to be a glorified Triple-A team amid a complex relationship between the organization and the city.


Despite having significant control issues in the early going, Keller still has a respectable ERA and leads the AL in free passes.


He should feel a little better while playing against an Oakland squad that isn’t overpowering or not known for their patience. The Kansas City Royals will win to a predicted score of 7-3.
