Philadelphia Phillies          

Philadelphia enters tonight’s matchup sporting a 21-15 record that pegs them as the best team in the NL East. At the present time Philadelphia has a decent cushion on their divisional lead, seeing as how they’re nearest threat is the Atlanta Braves. And since the Braves are 4 games behind Philadelphia, it’s clear they’re not threating anyone at the moment. Nevertheless, Philly will do all they can to leave the rest of the division in the dust. Naturally this includes picking up this road win over the Royals. To help get this road win tonight, Philadelphia will be starting Jake Arrieta. So far this season, Arrieta has built up a 4-2 record, a 3.40 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP.

Players to Watch: Andrew McCutchen (5 HR, 12 RBI, .242 BA), Cesar Hernandez (3 HR, 14 RBI, .305 BA), and Bryce Harper (7 HR, 25 RBI, .231 BA).

Kansas City Royals   

The Royals enter tonight’s matchup sporting a 13-25 record that ranks them dead last in the AL Central. Since Kansas City is already 11 ½ games behind the AL Central leading Minnesota Twins, it’s safe to say that they’re having a pitiful season. Although there’s still time to turn things around, Kansas City will need a serious turnaround to do so. And from what we’ve seen out of Kansas City as of late, it doesn’t look like they’ll be getting that turnaround any time soon. Nonetheless, Kansas City will be starting Homer Bailey this Friday. Bailey takes to the mound with a 3-3 record as well as a 5.25 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP.

Players to Watch: Whit Merrifield (6 HR, 19 RBI, .295 BA), Adalberto Mondesi (5 HR, 33 RBI, .276 BA), and Jorge Soler (9 HR, 24 RBI, .255 BA).
