The Kansas City Royals will be fighting to snap a losing streak on Monday when they take on the Chicago White Sox at Royals Stadium.

The White Sox will give the ball to starter Dylan Covey in this one. Right hander Covey is 0-1 this season with a 6.91 ERA.

Covey’s opponent in this one will be Jason Vargas. The Royals left hander has a 1.40 ERA to go along with a 3-1 record this season.

Covey allowed two runs on three hits and three walks in four frames of a no-decision against the Royals last week. He has issued eight free passes and recorded just six strikeouts in his young career while giving up nine extra-base hits over the course of the three outings. The 25-year-old surrendered eight runs over five innings in his most recent road start.

After allowing just one run over his first three turns this year, Vargas was reached for four – three earned – in five frames of a loss at Chicago last Monday. He served up his first home run of the season in the setback but did register his second straight start without issuing a walk. The California native is 1-3 with a 6.70 ERA in 10 career games (nine starts) against the White Sox.

Oddsmakers currently have the Royals listed as 155-moneyline favorites versus the White Sox, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The Chicago White Sox dominated the Kansas City Royals in a series at home last week and will try to duplicate that effort when the teams begin a four-game set in Kansas City on Monday. The White Sox outscored the Royals 27-8 in the three-game sweep while building up a six-game winning streak, which came to an end Sunday in Detroit.

Meanwhile, Kansas City has been unable to recover and enters the rematch with a nine-game losing streak – its longest in five years. “It’s tough to go through a stretch like this, especially when I know we’re better than what we’re playing,” Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain told reporters after Sunday’s 7-5 loss to Minnesota. “What can you do? Keep playing, keep battling. Hopefully, we can come out of this.” One positive for the Royals thus far has been Jason Vargas, who was dominant in his first three outings before suffering a loss last time out. He will be opposed by White Sox rookie Dylan Covey, who will be making his fourth career start.
