The Kansas City Royals and the Oakland Athletics will both be trying to pick up a win on Tuesday when they battle at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

The Royals will give the ball to starter Jason Hammel in this one. Right hander Hammel is 5-9 this season with a 4.68 ERA.

Hammel’s opponent in this one will be Chris Smith. The Athletics right hander has a 5.29 ERA to go along with a 0-2 record this season.

Hammel continued his solid pitching Thursday, when he allowed fewer than four runs for the 12th time in 13 starts in a no-decision at St. Louis. The 34-year-old native of South Carolina has won only four of those outings, however, and is 2-4 with a 4.73 ERA in nine turns on the road this season. Hammel, who went 2-6 in 13 appearances (12 starts) for Oakland in 2014, fell to 4-2 lifetime against his former team after yielding four runs and seven hits over 4 2/3 frames on April 12.

Smith remains in search of his first major-league victory since 2008 with Boston after being tagged for five runs and seven hits – four homers – over six innings in a loss to Baltimore on Thursday. The 36-year-old Californian has surrendered four or more runs in three consecutive outings – including one in relief – after giving up three or fewer in each of his first three turns this year. Smith has issued one walk and recorded four strikeouts over three frames in two career relief appearances versus Kansas City.

Oddsmakers currently have the Royals listed as 117-moneyline favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

A pair of series against last-place teams appears to be just what the Kansas City Royals needed. Kansas City aims for its fourth straight victory and to bolster its hopes for a wild-card spot when it visits the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday for the middle contest of their three-game series.

The Royals dropped the opener of their set against the Chicago White Sox, who reside in the American League Central basement, to see their losing streak reach five games before winning the final two meetings. They made it three in a row Monday, when rookie Cam Gallagher belted a grand slam for his first career homer en route to a 6-2 triumph in the opener versus AL West-worst Oakland. Kansas City is 3-3 on its eight-game road trip and one-half game behind the Los Angeles Angels for the second wild card in the AL. The Athletics managed only five hits as they fell to 2-5 on their nine-game homestand, but Ryon Healy recorded one of them and has gone 5-for-11 over his last three contests.

In their last action, Oakland was a 6-2 loser on the road against the Royals. Bettors on Kansas City at -106 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (8) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.

Kansas City was a 6-2 winner in its last match on the road against the Athletics. They won as -106 favorites, while the total score of 8 made winners of UNDER bettors.
