Royals vs. Orioles MLB Pick – August 19th

The Kansas City Royals had a opportunity to overcome the New York Mets in their three-game series over the weekend, however, let things to get away on Sunday afternoon. Going to the 7th inning with a 4-3 lead, the Mets poured it around with 6 runs to go comfortably by a score of 9-4. Sunday afternoon they would finally go on to get a 11-5 victory. What looked like will be a near one turned for the Mets into a blowout.
If the Mets bats are swinging like that down the stretch, then you might want to pen them. The offense is their huge question mark, that has been an inconsistent unit for them from 2019. Its tough to bet they have to throw at hitters.
The Royals move on with a trip to Baltimore for a meaningless run against the Orioles. Meaningless in the sense that this game does not have any impact on this postseason. Together with the Royals and Orioles taking a look at a number of their younger talent its basically a glorified spring training match. They are already searching for a 2020 lineup. Do not expect too much advancement from either side next season.
Since the rookie will get his 24th look tonight, baltimore are getting a fantastic look at John Means. He pitched in 3.1 innings to have a taste of big league action last season. This season, with an opening in the rotation, the Orioles have contributed that an opportunity as a beginner to Means.
We have been seeing him fight, although hes been decent for a beginner. We are going to see what he could do in home at Baltimore against the Royals tonight. Jorge Lopez, that has eclipsed his previous high of seven starts in one year will be looked to by the Royals.
Lopez is going to be expected to make his 31st appearance and begin in 2019 tonight. He has not been good, but Lopez is a human body which the Royals can throw out there at this season. Head below for our complimentary Royals vs. Orioles pick.

John Means is currently trying to keep it down the stretch. Means has found out that beating league hitting isnt likely to be easy all the time, although he pitched well this year, especially for a rookie. It can be a marathon for a great deal of pitchers who arent utilised to pitching this much contrary to the best hitters on the planet. Means has been throttled in his outings, each of which came against the Yankees.
He will not need to confront a lineup as good as the Yankees here, however, his confidence has been shaken for them. Means allowed 10 earned runs in 7.1 innings of play, together with all the Yanks winning by scores of 14-2 and 8-3. He was fighting three outings back from the Diamondbacks.
Means yielded 6 hits and 3 earned runs in 3.1 innings. He hasnt made it past 3 innings because July 19th against the Red Sox. This will be his first look at the Royals in his career. Means should be receiving plenty of run support from Jorge Lopez tonight, so he may not need a performance for a Baltimore win. We know that he probably is not likely to find much assistance from the bullpen, who are dead last in the world with a 6.08 ERA. Lopez will seek only his second win of the year tonight.
Lopez has had chances to stick in a turning because 2015, however, was never able to get the work done. Nothing has ever changed in 2019 as he looks like a guy who belongs in the minors. Lopez enters Monday with a 6.51 ERA and also 1.55 WHIP. Hes gotten punished for a 15.75 ERA, 2.62 WHIP, along with .511 OBA within his past three starts.
Lopez has spent all his time in the bullpen this season and has been encouraged in his most recent appearance to start against the Tigers. He was lost because he was exposed for 4 earned runs in 1.1 innings. Baltimore are hitting on .429 with a .500 OBP in seven at-bats against Lopez. The isnt going to suddenly figure it out tonight. This looks like a nice place to get the ticket.
