Analysis

(3%) KC. Off three straight losses and fighting to keep from falling further behind in the AL Central, I expect the Royals to bounce back this afternoon. Lugo beat the Dodgers 7-2 last time out. It was his fifth straight start of at least six complete innings. He's gone 5+ in every start this season. In eight road starts, averaging 6.8 innings, he's got a 7-0 record with a 1.83 ERA and 0.889 WHIP. It doesn't get much better than that. In fact, it does. In five daytime starts, Lugo has a 1.62 ERA and 0.81 WHIP. Opposing batters are hitting .176. Spence, on the other hand, has a 6.14 ERA in four daytime appearances (1 start). In three June starts, Spence has a 4.82 ERA. Oakland lost all three. KC rolls. *good up to -160
