The Royals continue their last place battle with the Indians knowing they have taken 5 of the last 6 meetings. The Pathetic Cleveland offense has scored eight combined runs in their last six games heading into Friday night action. Zack Greinke has faced the Tribe ten times in his career and he has never allowed more than three earned runs in any game. The Royals have beaten the Indians 6 of 8 games with Greinke on the hill. The youngster is also in terrific current form having permitted just 4 earned runs in his last 22 innings.
Jeanmar Gomez get’s the start for the host and he has been quite impressive thus far. In his first four starts in the majors he was virtually untouchable. But in his last start against the Tigers Detroit lit him up for 7 earned runs in 3 innings of work. That was the second time Detroit faced the youngster and Saturday marks the second time the Royals have seen him in 12 days. Unlike Greinke who was a highly touted pitcher coming up the Indians really didn’t promote Gomez for anything other than eating innings. They have had terrible starting pitching all season and he was a fresh arm. The Royals took 2 of 3 last week in Kansas City and they grab another victory here.
