The Baltimore Orioles will host the Kansas City Royals in the second game of a three-game set Tuesday night from Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The Royals will give the call to 25-year old right-hander Brad Keller, and the Orioles will hand the ball to 26-year old right-hander Dylan Bundy. This is the first series between these two foes this season, and the Royals won Monday’s series opener 5-4.

Keller Falls to Cardinals in Fourth Straight Loss

Brad Keller will make his 27th start of the season, looking to avoid his fifth straight defeat. Keller was solid in his latest effort, holding the Cardinals to three runs in six innings, and he was tagged with another loss to dip his record to 7-13. The second-year right-hander hasn’t been sharp recently, although he owns decent numbers, logging a 4.10 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP in 158 innings pitched on the season. Keller limited the Orioles to only two runs in eight innings in his lone career meeting last season.

Whit Merrifield has recorded several multi-hit games this month, and he now features a .302 average in August. The 30-year old second baseman is the Royals most consistent hitter, sporting a .300 average with 14 homers and 63 RBI’s on the season. Merrifield went a stellar 11 for 22 with four RBI’s against the Orioles last season.

The Royals offense has gone cold recently which includes a series loss to the Cardinals followed by another series loss to the Mets this past weekend. They are missing the presence of Adalberto Mondesi who remains on the IL.

The Royals are scoring an average of 4.27 runs on the year, placing them 28th in the Majors. The K.C. pitching staff is carrying a poor 4.98 team ERA, pegging them down at 23rd in the Major Leagues. The Royals are 20-41 on the road entering Monday’s play.
