Kansas City Continues Trek in Arizona

Royals Attempt to Bounce Back

The Kansas City Royals lost once again on Monday, which is nothing new. The defeat against the Arizona Diamondbacks was their 18th in their first 23 games.

They get a rematch with the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, though, with an opportunity to get back on track. The MLB news shows that the Diamondbacks are again favored in this spot, but are they worth a bet?

Royals Sending Out Singer

The Kansas City Royals are one of the worst options versus the MLB odds to start the season. They only have five wins and have lost nine of their last 10. They are hoping that Brady Singer can get them back into the win column.

The challenge here is that Singer has been brutal to start the year. He’s as much of a problem as anyone else on the team, giving up 19 runs in 21.0 innings of work. That makes it hard to trust him for your MLB picks.

After his first appearance, when he went five innings and allowed one run, he’s fallen off course completely. His last three games saw him give up five, eight and five runs.

For a Royals team that is already lacking in the talent department, having a starting pitcher give up around five runs per game isn’t exactly a winning recipe. In the last two games that Singer has appeared, the Royals lost by a combined 22-6 score.

Diamondbacks Atop NL East

The Arizona Diamondbacks have gotten off to a solid start as they’re 13-11 and are atop the National League West. After beating the Royals on Monday, they look to do it once more on Tuesday as a mid-sized favorite in the sportsbook.

Ryne Nelson will be on the mound and he’s been alright, giving up 12 runs in 22.0 innings. Five of them were in his last outing against the San Diego Padres. He’s only made seven career starts to date, so we still don’t have a ton of intel on him.

What’s leading this team right now is the batting lineup. The Padres are seventh in team batting average and eight in RBIs. It’s been a balanced effort as no player has more than four home runs but seven are batting .286 or better.
