Kansas City Royals vs. Seattle Mariners (Game Three)

Source link :

Kansas City, MO. – The Kansas City Royals have come out of their skid in their last few games in exciting fashion. They are currently sitting at 13 games above the .500 mark and only three games back in the division race to the Cleveland Guardians. The Royals picked up back-to-back home wins against the Mariners in recent days while utilizing the back end of their bullpen. If the Royals can win this contest today they will go into the New York series down a maximum of three games with Seth Lugo and Brady Singer ready to go.

Kansas City has been propelled by timely at-bats in recent games, allowing them to overcome defecits and pull themselves away when ahead. It will be much easier for the Royals to win if they’re not allowing over six runs per game this series obviously, but the fact that the Royals have shown the ability to win games even when the pitching staff has off nights is huge for the team. The offense will have to continue tonight if the Royals want a chance to pull one game closer to the division lead.

1:30 p.m. – Salvador Perez got caught looking at a ball in the top of the zone for strike and out number three. It looked like Perez disagreed with the call, but it was the right one. Kirby strands Pasquantino at third. 1-0 Mariners

1:27 p.m. – Vinnie Pasquantino was seeing the ball well in that at-bat, coming just feet from a home run before the ball sliced foul before hammering a ball into the gap for a two-out triple. 1-0 Mariners

1:19 p.m. – Cole Ragans responds to giving up a home run by striking out the next three batters in order. Ragans still has a chance to make this a great start if he can reign it in and get back on track in upcoming innings. 1-0 Mariners

1:15 p.m. – The game is underway here as J.P. Crawford hits a home run in the first at bat of the game for the second time in the last two games. Royals just can’t get a break early in this series. 1-0 Mariners
