Point Spread: -1.50 | -121.00 Houston (Home)
The rebuilding Royals actually enter this matchup having just swept the Cubs in Chicago. The Royals, though, are not a good road team and the Cubs hoisted the white flag at the trade deadline. The Cubs' lineup looks like a minor league roster now.
Daniel Lynch gets another start in his audition with the Royals. He has a 5.12 ERA. The Astros just saw him six days ago. Lynch shut the Astros down holding them to one run in seven innings. I don't see that happening again. Houston leads the majors in batting average and is second in slugging percentage.
Greinke is having another solid year going 11-3 with a 3.43 ERA.
