Kansas City has been doing an excellent job making up for lost time. They came out of the starting gates with a royal thud, falling ten games below .500 in early May. The whispers were out that it was time to break up the band. But they come into this weekend’s series four games above .500 and very much in contention for the division and a wildcard spot.

They’d won six of seven over Minnesota and Seattle heading into this series.

The Dodgers on the other hand are a freight train wiping out all in its path. They have been the best team in baseball since Mid-May and they are at it against, winners of six of their past seven. They have a 23-4 record since June 7th and they just got done sweeping second-place Arizona heading into this series.

Ian Kennedy (3-6, 4.44 ERA) is one of those pitchers busy getting back on track. He started the season 0-6, but the Royals have won his last five starts and he’s picked up the win three times. He’s allowed six earned runs (eight total) in his last four games and 24.1 innings.

Brandon McCarthy (6-3, 3.25 ERA) has become somewhat of a forgotten man behind Clayton Kershaw and Alex Wood this season, but he’s been excellent for the most part as well. That does not include his last start however, where he allowed four earned runs and five total in three innings. The Dodgers prevailed nonetheless 12-6 over the Rockies. In his six previous starts he’d allowed six runs in 34.1 innings pitched.

Mybookie Sportsbook has the Dodgers favorites at 190-moneyline with the total sitting at 9.

MLB Runline Odds at BetOnline the Dodgers were favored by -1½ (+105)
