The last time the Kansas City Royals travelled to Citi Field they were drinking champagne in light of their second World Series title. After a bumpy start to the season, the Royals are looking like themselves once again in the form of an 8-1 stretch in their last nine games. K.C. and the Mets will square off once again on Tuesday.
- The Royals are 7-2 SU in their last nine games against the Mets.
- The total has gone OVER in six of the Royals’ last eight games against the Mets.
- The total has gone OVER in 10 of the Mets’ last 14 games as a moneyline favorite of -190 or less.
Ian Kennedy and Noah Syndergaard are scheduled to start for the tilt. Kennedy (5-5, 4.14 ERA) picked up his first win since May 7 last Wednesday, but his performance wasn’t very deserving of it. Kennedy allowed four runs on five hits in a 9-4 victory over Cleveland, but he’s been taken deep eight times in his last three outings.
Syndergaard (7-2, 1.91) has posted seven quality starts in a row, and has allowed just 18 earned runs in 85 innings of work this season.
When these teams collide, high-scoring affairs are the story. The OVER is 6-2 in the last eight matchups between the Mets and Royals.
