Kansas City Royals vs Milwaukee Brewers Prediction

I’m on the Royals here. I just like Brady Singer a lot more at home really than I like Joe Ross anywhere. Ross had a nice first couple of starts to the year but has really shown his true colors in his last few starts for Milwaukee. The Royals have had a tendency to hit right-handed pitching hard all year long and I look for this game to be no different against a starter in Ross that just looks like a lower-end option in the Brewers rotation. Give me the Royals.
