The Royals will get not one, but two chances to end their eleven-game winning streak today with a doubleheader in Chicago. Remember, double-headers are seven-inning affairs, which means the Royals really need to jump out to a good start.
#Royals play two in Chicago today. So how important is grabbing an early lead in 7-inning doubleheaders? In a word...VERY.— Dave Holtzman (@DHoltzy) May 14, 2021
The team leading after 3 innings has posted an .813 winning pct. in 7-inning games since start of the 2020 season.
Brad Keller will go against Lucas Giolito in Game One, at 2:10 CT. Jakob Junis will face Michael Kopech in the nightcap at 7:10 CT.
