The Kansas City Royals had a game to forget on Monday, but could still split their two-game series with the Cleveland Indians by picking up a victory on Tuesday evening. And, even if Game 2 of the Royals-Indians series doesn't go as planned, the Danny Duffy era is scheduled to begin on Wednesday!
The Royals, 20-20 on the season, will trot out right-hander Sean O`Sullivan (2-2, 3.79 ERA) as their starting pitcher Tuesday evening after using seven other pitchers on Monday. For the Indians, Carlos Carrasco will get the start while looking for his first win since April 8.
According to MLB.com's preview, O'Sullivan may have the other hand in that match-up as current Indians are batting just .234 against the 23-year-old starter. All in all, though, as long as O'Sullivan doesn't pull a Kyle Davies or Vin Mazzaro (who has since been reassigned to Triple-A Omaha) Royals fans probably won't have too much to complain about.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. The game is on the radio (KCSP 610), television (Fox Sports Kansas City) and even free online as the MLB.tv Free Game of the Day.
