I’m backing the Arizona Diamondbacks again Saturday due to their advantage on the mound over the Kansas City Royals. Ian Kennedy is the better starter in this match-up over Bruce Chen of the Royals.
Kennedy has posted a 3.81 ERA and 1.288 WHIP in eight starts this season. Kennedy sports a 2.13 ERA and 1.145 WHIP in four road starts this year as he’s pitched his best when getting away from hitter-friendly Arizona. Remember, he was a 21-game winner last season.
Chen is 2-4 with a 4.34 ERA in eight starts this year. The left-hander is 1-3 with a 4.61 ERA in four home starts. Chen is 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA in three career starts against Arizona, while Kennedy is 1-0 with a 2.45 ERA in two career starts against Kansas City.
Kansas City is 0-10 in their last 10 vs. an NL team with a team batting average of .255 or worse over the last 2 seasons. The Royals are 0-12 in home games vs. teams averaging 2.75 or less extra base hits per game this season. Kansas City is 4-16 in home games this season. Bet the Diamondbacks Saturday.
