The Kansas City Royals are headed to face the Milwaukee Brewers after losing two games against the Baltimore Orioles.

The first game after the All-Star break went really well for the Kansas City Royals when they faced off against the Baltimore Orioles. But, the second and third games of that series were less than enjoyable for the Royals.

Kansas City’s less than stellar performances against Baltimore (one of the absolute worst teams in all of Major League Baseball) were incredibly frustrating to try and keep up with. The Royals were abysmal against the Orioles and now they’re headed up north to face off against a much better opponent.

In a two-game series, the Kansas City Royals will meet up with the Milwaukee Brewers up in Wisconsin.

Unfortunately for Kansas City’s chances at winning these games, the Brewers are considerably better than the Baltimore Orioles. In fact, Milwaukee happens to be one of the best teams in the National League (and in all of Major League Baseball) this season.

The Royals actually looked fairly competent against Baltimore and it appeared as if this team would actually find a way to win a series and give its fans something to be optimistic about. However, that wasn’t the case, and a rough season continued to stay frustrating.

Now Kansas City meets up with Milwaukee in a short midweek series.

Interested in keeping up with the Royals as they try to upend the Brewers? Here’s everything you need to watch (or listen to) this road series:

When comparing these two teams, it seems like there’s little hope for the Royals to really get two wins here. The Royals’ run differential sits at -101. Meanwhile, Milwaukee’s run differential is +62.

That’s a fairly significant difference and it show just how much better the Brewers have been in comparison to the Royals. But, you know, maybe something good will happen? Maybe, just maybe, this team can get an upset or two on the road?
