Nover’s View: Cardinals-Royals Free Tuesday Play

Cardinals minus $1.14 at Royals

Austin Gomber sounds like a character from Mayberry on the old Andy Griffith Show. But Gomber is no Gomer. He’s pitched well with a 2.37 ERA. The lefthanded Gomber has been stingy against the Royals with 6 2/3 career scoreless innings versus Kansas City.

This is a cheap price to get Gomber and the Cardinals. St. Louis is fighting for a playoff spot. Kansas City is evaluating talent playing for next year.

The Royals rank 27th in runs scored and 26th in on base percentage. They have scored 16 runs in their last seven games, an average of 2.2 runs per game during this span.

Kansas City also has lost 39 of the past 58 times they’ve faced a lefty starter at home.

The Cardinals draw righty Brady Singer, who has a 3-4 record and 4.14 ERA. Those numbers are almost ace like coming from someone on the Royals. Singer is merely mediocre at best. He’s pitched much worse at home with a 6.75 ERA. St. Louis is 6-1 the past seven times going against a righty starter.
