After upsetting the Houston Astros last night, the Kansas City Royals are looking to sneak in and get another win tonight.
The Kansas City Royals needed a win and last night they were able to get one against one of the best teams in baseball right now. Last night, the Houston Astros entered Kauffman Stadium for the first time this season and ended up losing 7-6 to the Kansas City Royals.
Now the Kansas City Royals have a chance to make things interesting. There are three more games in this series. Should the Royals find a way to win again tonight, they’re ensuring that, at worst, the series is split with the Astros.
That said, the Royals will probably find tonight to be a bit more of a challenge. The Astros are likely to start Framber Valdez, who has shown to be a very solid and reliable starting pitcher for Houston this year.
Here’s everything you’ll need to keep up with the second game of the series between the Kansas City Royals and the Houston Astros.
