Kansas City Royals Form
The Kansas City Royals are one of the worst teams in the league this season. However, they still will play to build some confidence for next year and they also can play the role of spoiler against teams that are looking to get into the postseason. The Royals’s away record is at 21-45 so far this season. And the only positive is that they have some younger talent in their ranks that shows good potential.

Also, they are 25th in hitting at .240 and 28th in homers with 128. On the mound, they are 24th in the league in ERA at 5.00, while also ranking 28th in WHIP at 1.46 and 28th in K’s with 988.
Cleveland Indians Form
Cleveland is struggling lately as their recent offensive record stands at 2.25 runs per game in the last 4 MLB games. However, they used these games against the Royals to improve their form. The Indians will enter their game on Saturday night sitting just 2.5 gamed out of first in the American League. Furthermore, they are tied with the A’s for the 2nd spot in the AL wildcard race. Therefore, they will do their best to win this game too.
