Kauffman Stadium Has Been A Safe Place For Royals

Despite taking the loss last night at home, Kauffman Stadium has been kind to the Kansas City Royals since the Midsummer Classic. The Royals have gone 6-1 in their past seven games at home while going 5-4 away from Kauffman in the same span of time. The Royals take to their home diamond when they continue a four-game set with the Seattle Mariners Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • Kyle Seager is slashing .300/.378/.613 since the all-star break.
  • The Royals are 9-3 SU in their last 12 games against right handed starting pitchers.
  • The Mariners are 11-4 SU and ATS in their last 15 games on the road against teams with winning records.

The Royals will send Danny Duffy to the mound in hopes he can continue his recent stellar play. The lefty has allowed just one run in three of his past four starts and has only walked two batters in that time. Duffy has also enjoyed playing at Kauffman Stadium this season with a 2.93 ERA in KC.

Felix Hernandez will be in search of his royal lineage when he takes the bump in this one. Hernandez has given up a combined 10 hits and eight earned runs in his past two starts. Those outings also saw the righty struggle with the long ball, an issue that has plagued him with Hernandez giving up at least one home run in all but two starts this season.
