The fans at Kauffman Stadium will be treated to a game between the Oakland Athletics and the Kansas City Royals when they take their seats on Thursday.

The Athletics will give the ball to starter Daniel Mengden in this one. Right hander Mengden is 1-7 this season with a 6.39 ERA.

 Mengden’s stint in the minors did little to help him produce better results with Oakland, as he has surrendered nine runs and 13 hits over 7 2/3 innings in two starts since returning. The 23-year-old native of Houston pitched well against Seattle on Friday, allowing two runs over five frames, but lost his fourth consecutive decision. Mengden, who never has faced Kansas City, has posted a 5.56 ERA in four turns on the road during his rookie season.

It’ll be Edinson Volquez toeing the rubber for the Royals in this contest. Right hander Volquez is 10-10 with a 5.14 ERA so far this season.

 Volquez is riding a seven-start unbeaten streak despite failing to record a decision in each of his last three turns. The 33-year-old Dominican is just 2-0 during the streak, however, and has yielded four runs in six of those outings. Volquez improved to 3-2 with a 2.89 ERA in five career starts against the Athletics on April 15, allowing two runs – one earned – and three hits in six innings at Oakland.

Last time out for Kansas City, they were a 8-0 loser as they battled the Athletics on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Athletics at 106 were rewarded, while the 8 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

In their last action, Oakland was a 8-0 winner on the road against the Royals. Bettors on Oakland at 106 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (8) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
