Given the starting pitching matchup on tap — which sports two of my favorite under-the-radar pitchers in all of baseball — you can bet this series finale caught my attention right away.

On the season, Kansas City starter Jakob Junis’ numbers may not particularly stand out, but they don’t tell the whole story of his first full campaign as a starter in the big leagues, either.

Junis actually held a very respectable 3.61 ERA and 1.13 WHIP through the season’s first two months, but hit a rough patch afterward that included him pitching through a back injury that would ultimately land him on the disabled list for much of July.
