On Wednesday, August 2nd at Kauffman Stadium, the Kansas City Royals will be hoping to win Game 2 of their three-game series against the New York Mets. Kansas City won the first game of the series on Tuesday.
The Kansas City Royals scored an amazing comeback win over the New York Mets 7-6 in 10 innings thanks to Josh Walker scoring on a balk in the 10th inning – giving them their fourth consecutive victory after MJ Melendez’ single homer off Brooks Raley had given them the tie of the game. Bobby Witt Jr hit an RBI double that knotted it up before taking advantage of Mets a bullpen that struggles, allowing 3 runs total over the final frame allowing their rivals to draw first blood in the series.
For most of the past 3 campaigns, the Kansas City Royals have undergone a complete rebuild. They turned to a youth motion, and while they continue to acclimate to the major levels, their outcomes have included a significant amount of being defeated. The Mets have won 4 of their previous 6 games and 3 in a row, keeping them slightly in front of Oakland in the battle for the sport’s poorest record as Kansas City enters this set.
Cole Ragans is scheduled to start this game for the Royals. This makes his 19th appearance and 2nd start of the season. He currently sports a record of 2-3 and has an ERA of 5.22.
Following the MLB Trade Deadline, the New York Mets made the decision to start revamping to prepare for the 2024 campaign after letting go of a number of important players and acquiring some additional salary freedom. New York has struggled this season under a new ownership group, who then spent millions of dollars throughout the offseason to help the squad win its first world championship since 1986.
In this game, Kodai Senga will get the ball for the Mets. In his debut MLB campaign, Senga has made 19 starts and has a 7-5 record with 8 quality starts. In 105 innings thrown, he has only given up 77 hits for an ERA of 3.17. Senga possesses a 11.1 K/9 rate with a 1.24 WHIP.
