Kansas City 6 @ Oakland 1 | 06/11 | 1:40 AM UTC

Oakland -145

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The Royals appear to be fading fast on a five-game skid and scoring just 10 total runs in that stretch. That last time the Royals had a five-game skid this year ... it eventually reached 11. KC is only team in baseball in 2021 to have recorded multiple five-game winning streaks and multiple five-game losing streaks. Oakland has destroyed lefties for a few years and faces one in Mike Minor (4-3, 4.84). A's starter Frankie Montas (6-4, 4.25) is 2-0 with a 1.62 ERA in three career games (two starts) against the Royals. He has a 3.25 ERA over his past five outings this year after a 5.50 ERA over his first seven starts. The A's are a phenomenal 14-3 in their past 17 series openers.
