Free Pick on Kansas City Royals

Oakland vs. Kansas City, 07/06/2013 14:10
Money Line: -107 Kansas City

The Royals will have Ervin Santana and his 2.84 ERA on the mound today when they face the Oakland A's. Santana's record has been a bit deceiving because the Royals were going through a bad hitting slump earlier this season. Over their past seven games Kansas City has a .272 team batting average and they are scoring six runs per game in that span. With Kansas City hitting so well, I do not expect run support for Santana to be an issue today.

Oakland is going through a bit of a hitting slump now. They have a .240 batting average over their past seven games and they will have Jarrod Parker getting the start today. Parker has posted a 4.11 ERA in his 17 starts this season. Parker has just two starts in his career against the Royals and a 0-1 record. Santana on the other hand has a 14-6 record in his career against the Royals. He has posted a 2.09 ERA in a total of 25 games against Kansas City.
