A proverbial rubber match

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

From Wikipedia:

Rubber game:

A term used for the last game of a series or match when the two teams have evenly split the previous games. See also rubber bridge / best-of-three playoff.

Given that this weekend series meets the requirements outlined above, we can deem this competition a rubber match.

As outlined above, Wade Miley will face Chris Young on the bump(s).

While pitching vs player and even pitcher vs team historical stats are basically meaningless, here at Royals Review we try to be all encompassing. Below you'll find how Wade Miley has performed against some Royals hitters.

For those of us simply marking time until the True Detective season 2 premier tonight, consider this thread and game your waiting room.
