The Kansas City Royals and the Boston Red Sox will both be trying to pick up a win on Saturday when they battle at Fenway Park.

The Royals will give the ball to starter Trevor Cahill in this one. Right hander Cahill is 4-3 this season with a 3.69 ERA.

It’ll be Eduardo Rodriguez toeing the rubber for the Red Sox in this contest. Left hander Rodriguez is 4-3 with a 3.89 ERA so far this season.

Cahill is making the jump back to the American League, where he began his career and spent three seasons with the Oakland Athletics from 2009-11. The veteran sinkerballer pitched out of the bullpen for the Chicago Cubs in 2015 and 2016 but thrived in a return to the rotation for the San Diego Padres this season, allowing three or fewer earned runs in seven of his 11 starts. Cahill’s worst outing came in his Padres finale on July 21, when he was lit up for six runs – five earned – on seven hits and four walks in 3 2/3 innings at San Francisco.

Rodriguez is making his third start since coming back from a knee injury and is looking for his first win since May 26. The Venezuelan could not get any run support at Seattle on Monday but did not help himself much by allowing four runs on six hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings while absorbing a loss. Rodriguez faced Kansas City once last season and took the loss while yielding five runs on four hits and four walks in 5 1/3 frames.

Oddsmakers currently have the Red Sox listed as 138-moneyline favorites versus the Royals, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

The Kansas City Royals are getting closer to first place in the American League Central while the Boston Red Sox are losing their grip on first in the East. The Royals will try to push their winning streak to 10 straight at the expense of the struggling Red Sox when they visit Boston on Saturday for the second of a three-game series.

Kansas City’s pitching staff allowed three or fewer runs in six of the last nine games, but its offense is getting most of the credit and Mike Moustakas highlighted Friday’s 4-2 win with his 30th home run – eight more than his previous career high. Moustakas and the offense have driven the Royals into wild-card position in the AL and two games behind the Cleveland Indians in the Central. The Red Sox spent the last month in first place in the AL East but finally fell off that perch on Friday and dropped one-half game behind the New York Yankees while falling for the fifth time in the last six games. Boston lefty Eduardo Rodriguez will try to slow the Kansas City offense on Saturday while the Royals counter with Trevor Cahill, who was acquired from the San Diego Padres earlier in the week.

Boston lost its last outing, a 4-2 result against the Royals on July 28. Bettors who backed the Royals at 146 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (6) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
