The Kansas City Royals have faced some stiff competition of late against the Mariners, Indians and Red Sox. And true to form, they’ve lost every since one of them, so they are on a nine-game losing streak heading into this one. That includes giving up 32 runs to Boston on the weekend.

Minnesota comes in winners of four-straight after sweeping another team playing for the bottom of the standings, Baltimore. The wins helped to erase a 2-11 stretch that preceded it.

Danny Duffy (4-8, 5.19 ERA) gave up six runs in six innings last time out in a 6-4 loss to the Indians. In his two prior starts though he allowed a total of one run, both Royals wins. Overall Kansas City is 5-5 in his last ten outings.

Jose Berrios (8-7, 3.54 ERA) gave up three runs in seven innings last time out. He’s now allowed three runs or less in five of six and eight of his last ten starts. The Twins are 6-4 when he takes the mound.

Pitching Matchup:
Royals: LH Danny Duffy (4-8, 5.19 ERA)
Twins: RH Jose Berrios (8-7, 3.54)
