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

Danny Duffy will be the starting pitcher for the Royals on this day. Left hander Duffy is 7-8 this season with a 3.68 ERA.

The Athletics will counter Duffy with Paul Blackburn. Right hander Blackburn has a 3.02 ERA to go along with a 3-1 record this season.

Duffy allowed just one run in each of his final two starts in July but has struggled this month, surrendering 12 runs – eight earned – and 14 hits over 12 innings in losses to Seattle and the Chicago White Sox. The 28-year-old Californian has demonstrated good control since the end of May, issuing a total of six walks in 51 1/3 frames while registering 47 strikeouts. Duffy has yet to lose to Oakland, going 3-0 with a 2.84 ERA in five starts and one relief appearance.

Blackburn extended his unbeaten streak to four starts Friday as he escaped with a no-decision after surrendering four runs and 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings against Baltimore. The 23-year-old rookie from the Golden State allowed a home run in that outing, ending his streak of three turns without serving up a blast. Blackburn, who will be facing Kansas City for the first time, has posted a 4.50 ERA in four starts at home as opposed to a 1.69 mark in four road outings.

Oddsmakers currently have the Royals listed as 121-moneyline favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The Kansas City Royals made an impressive comeback late in Tuesday’s contest but were unable to prevent a better one and had their three-game winning streak halted. Kansas City looks to end its eight-game road trip on a high note when it visits the Oakland Athletics for the rubber match of their three-game series.

The Royals squandered an early three-run advantage on Tuesday but scored five runs on three homers in the eighth inning to grab an 8-4 lead before yielding six runs in the bottom half. The club dropped to 3-4 on its trek and sits one-half game behind the Los Angeles Angels for the second wild-card spot in the American League. Oakland answered Kansas City with a six-run eighth that was highlighted by Matt Joyce’s three-run double. Joyce also belted one of the Athletics’ three home runs to finish with four RBIs and help the team improve to 3-5 on its nine-game homestand.

Last time out for Oakland, they were a 10-8 winner as they battled the Royals on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Athletics at 115 were rewarded, while the 18 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

The Royals were a 10-8 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Athletics. That made winners of bettors who got Oakland at 115 on the moneyline, while the total score (18) was good news for OVER bettors.
