Kansas City at New York

1 unit on Game Total UNDER 7 -115 (risk 1 to return 1.87) RESULT: LOSS
The pressure is off the Royals after winning last night. They lose the DH for this game in New York, and the UNDER is 3-1-1 in their last five interleague road games. Edinson Volquez gets the nod, who is returning from his father's funeral in the Dominican Republic. Many times pitchers come into games in emotional situations and throw lights out. David Cone struck out 19 Phillies and after the game told reporters his girlfriend dumped him that morning. When Roger Clemens returned to Fenway Park wearing a Toronto Blue Jays uniform after 12 years pitching for the Red Sox, he struck out 16 in a 3-1 win, pointing to the general manager's box during the game as he was steamed the team didn't want to re-sign him. Volquez should be supremely focused after what he just went through, and there's little pressure on him with the Royals up 3-1. The Royals are also 6-1 UNDER the total when Volquez faces a team with a winning record. New York has hard throwing ace Matt Harvey going and will have to use their best bullpen arms to try and stay alive. New York is 5-2-1 UNDER at home, 22-8 UNDER in interleague home games vs. a team with a winning record, plus 37-17-1 UNDER the total in interleague home games against a right-handed starter. Play Game 5 UNDER the total.
