Kansas City Royals vs Cleveland Guardians

The Kansas City Royals are hosting the Cleveland Guardians for a three-game, American League Central series, starting today.

There is stiff competition between the top three teams in the AL Central. The Minnesota Twins share top position with the Guardians, but nothing is certain as of now. The Guardians' recent run of 2-8 has caused them to give up their solo hold on the division lead. A 68-64 record for both Minnesota and Cleveland proves just how dicey the situation is. Right behind them are the Chicago White Sox, at 67-67.

For the Royals, their journey is over. With a 55-80 record, they cannot climb the ladder as the difference is too big. However, their 5-5 record in the last 10 might worry the Guardians. The home team must capitalize on this opportunity and have a shot at the away team. If all goes according to plan, the Kansas City Royals could cause an upset against the Guardians.

Cleveland will have to be on their toes from now on in order to maintain the second spot. If they let it slip, they might find themselves out of the lead altogether. Their terrible recent form could have a negative impact in the games to come. This is a make-or-break situation for the Guardians.

Brady Singer is back for the Royals against the Guardians for Game 1. The pitcher has been in sublime form this season despite the team's performance being below par.
