3 units on Kansas City -1.5 runs +162 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: loss
Texas has made a much better showing than expected, and have to call on minor-leaguer Eric Hurley. Hurley has not been impressive at Oklahoma where he was 2-5 with a 5.30 ERA. Bannister has completed 6 of 7 starts at home allowing 3 runs or less. The Royals have scored an average of 5 runs a game in their last 9 at home, and against a rookie pitcher, that hasn't held AAA teams to below 5 runs a game, more could be in store here, and with Bannister pitching very well at home, like the Royals in this spot.
