Toronto -140

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The pitching matchup might be somewhat close between Toronto's Yusei Kikuchi (2-2, 3.91 ERA) and Kansas City's Brady Singer (2-1, 4.15 ERA), but the Jays' lineup is vastly superior (Teoscar Hernandez is off today but that's still OK) -- especially as Kansas City's Whit Merrifield is slumping and Hunter Dozier remains out of the lineup Wednesday. The Royals, who have been shut out an MLB-best eight times this year, will attempt to avoid being shut out for the entirety of this three-game series, something that has happened to the franchise only twice. Overall, KC has lost 15 of 18 games and is now 20 games under .500 for the first time since the 2019 season.
