The Oakland Atheltics had a terrible start to the month, losing nine consecutive games but won the first two in the series against the Royals by 7-5 and 5-1. They will try to sweep their only second series of the season with Mitch Spence on the mound, who is 4-3 for the season with a 3.95 ERA, 43 K, 57 IP, and 1.21 WHIP. The Royals are determined to prevent that from happening, going with veteran Seth Lugo, who has an impressive season with a 10-2 record, a 2.40 ERA, 79 K, 97.1 IP, and 1.05 WHIP. Given the fact that the Royals have lost the last three games and that they are a much better team than the Athletics, and with Lugo on the mound, they will win this game pretty easily.
