Royals vs. Cubs prediction: Chicago the pick

4

The Royals are at Wrigley, and I haven’t been this excited since the U.S. women won the bronze medal game at the Olympics. Kansas City will start Brad Keller (7-12, 5.62 ERA), who has surrendered 10 runs in his last 14 2/3 innings. No, not good. To make matters worse the Royals (20-37 on the road) are like bananas. They don’t travel well. 

As for the Cubs. You know their story. No Taliban in Chicago, but Anthony Rizzo, Javier Baez, Kris Bryant and Craig Kimbrel all made it out safely. Zach Davies (6-9, 5.00 ERA) was left behind. Davies shut out the Fish for six innings in his latest outing. Playing 10 units on the Cubs. 


Yes! No! YES! Seattle, up 6-0, then 7-2 in the ninth inning, blew the lead but won it in 11 innings. Final score 9-8. Ty France’s two-run homer in the 11th putting an end to the endless foul language emanating from Casa De Stitches. Gut-wrenching win has us at -665 belchers.
