If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Friday when the Kansas City Royals and the Chicago White Sox meet at Guaranteed Rate Field.

The Royals will give the ball to starter Danny Duffy in this one. Left hander Duffy is 7-7 this season with a 3.48 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Reynaldo Lopez who starts for the White Sox. Right hander Lopez is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA so far this season.

After turning in back-to-back strong starts on the road, Duffy was roughed up for seven runs – three earned – on three homers in a loss to Seattle in his last outing. He yielded two runs in 13 2/3 innings at Baltimore and Detroit in his previous two turns and lost to Texas on July 15 despite giving up one run over 8 1/3 frames. Yolmer Sanchez is 9-for-20 and Jose Abreu has gone 13-for-37 against Duffy.

Lopez, who made 11 appearances (six starts) as a rookie with Washington last year, was acquired in the deal that sent Adam Eaton to the Nationals. The 23-year-old Dominican made 22 starts this season for Triple-A Charlotte, logging a 7-6 record and 3.79 ERA with 131 strikeouts in 121 innings. Right-handed batters hit .353 against Lopez last year, but he held left-handers to .193.

Oddsmakers currently have the Royals listed as 138-moneyline favorites versus the White Sox, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The Kansas City Royals are in a tailspin that has them back at the .500 mark, but they have a chance to turn things around with a pair of last-place clubs up next on the schedule. Coming off a four-game, home-and-home sweep by in-state rival St. Louis, the Royals continue their eight-game road trip against the Chicago White Sox on Friday.

Kansas City has lost four in a row and nine of 11 to surrender second place in the American League Central to Minnesota while remaining four games behind division-leading Cleveland. Lorenzo Cain went 7-for-10 in the two games in St. Louis, but the Royals were battered for 37 runs in the four-game set. Rookie Yoan Moncada hit a tying homer in the ninth inning before delivering a walk-off single in the 11th as the White Sox completed a three-game sweep of AL-leading Houston. Moncada is expected to be a key piece of Chicago’s rebuilding along with right-hander Reynaldo Lopez, who makes his season debut in the series opener.

Chicago won its last outing, a 3-2 result against the Astros on August 10. Bettors who backed the White Sox at 142 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

Kansas City lost its last outing, a 8-6 result against the Cardinals on August 10. Bettors who backed the Cardinals at -142 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (14) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
