The Kansas City Royals had a opportunity to overcome the New York Mets but let things to escape on Sunday afternoon. Going to the 7th inning with a 4-3 lead, the Mets poured it on with 6 runs to go comfortably by a score of 9-4. Sunday afternoon, they go on to get a 11-5 victory. What looked like will be a close one turned for the Mets into a blowout.
If the Mets bats are swinging down like that down the stretch, you may want to pencil them into the postseason. The crime is their question mark, that is an unit about them at 2019. Its tough to bet against the rotation they need to throw at hitters.
The Royals move on for a run against the Orioles having a visit to Baltimore. Meaningless in the feeling that this game does not have any effect on the postseason. Its essentially a spring match, with Orioles and the Royals getting a look at a number of their younger skills. They scouting for a 2020 lineup. Dont expect progress from side next season, though.
As the rookie will get his look tonight baltimore are getting a good look at John Means. He pitched in 3.1 innings to get a taste of major league action every day. This year, with a opening in the spinning, the Orioles have given Means an chance as a beginner.
Overall, hes been adequate for a newcomer, but we have been seeing him battle. We are going to find out what he could do at home in Baltimore against the Royals tonight. The Royals will look to Jorge Lopez, who has defended his previous high of seven starts in a year.
Lopez will be expected to make his 31st appearance and 12th start in 2019 tonight. Lopez is a human body that the Royals can throw out there at this lost season, although he has not been great. Head below to our complimentary Royals vs. Orioles pick.

John Means is attempting to keep it together down the stretch. He pitched well this year, especially for a beginner, but Means has just discovered that beating league hitting isnt likely to be easy all of the time. It can be a marathon for a lot of pitchers that arent utilised to pitching this much. Means was throttled in his outings, each of which came from the Yankees.
He wont have to face a lineup like the Yankees here, but his confidence has been shaken because of these. Means allowed 10 earned runs in 7.1 innings of play, together with the Yanks winning by dozens of 14-2 and 8-3. He was fighting against the Diamondbacks.
Means yielded 6 hits and 3 earned runs in 3.1 innings. He has not made it. This will be his first look at the Royals in his career. Means should be getting a lot of run support from Jorge Lopez tonight, therefore that he might not need a performance for a Baltimore win. We know he probably is not going to receive much assistance from the bullpen, that are dead last in the world with a 6.08 ERA. Lopez will be hunting just his second win of the year tonight.
Lopez has had chances to stay in a rotation since 2015, but was unable to get the job done. As he looks like a man who belongs to the minors nothing has changed for him personally in 2019. Lopez enters Monday with a 6.51 ERA along with 1.55 WHIP. Hes gotten punished for a 15.75 ERA, 2.62 WHIP, and .511 OBA in his past three starts.
Lopez has spent all his time in the bullpen this season and was encouraged in his latest appearance to begin from the Tigers. He was lost as he got exposed to 4 earned runs in 1.1 innings. Baltimore are hitting against .429 with a .500 OBP . The is not going to suddenly figure it out at Baltimore tonight. This looks like a wonderful place for an ticket.
