Pitching Matchup

RHP Jake Junis (5-6, 4.05 ERA, 76 SO) vs. RHP Charlie Morton (7-1, 2.82 ERA, 96 SO)

After a few rough outings in a row, it's about time that Morton snaps out of this rut and picks himself up against a lowly Royals offense that has some power at the top but zero depth in the bottom of the lineup.
