The Mariners head to Kauffman Stadium to take on the Kansas City Royals in what is pegged as an even matchup.

Despite Seattle being the team that is still chasing the postseason—a mere 4.0 games back of a Wildcard spot heading into Friday night—it is Kansas City that has dominated this season series so far.

The Royals have won three of the four matchups with the Mariners this season. Over those four games, the two teams have combined for an average of 9.5 runs per game, however, that number is boosted heavily by an 8-7 Royals win in late August that stands as somewhat of an outlier.

Take out that one high-scoring outlier game, and the Mariners-Royals matchups have totaled 7.6 runs per game, a number much more indicative of how things could play out this weekend.

Our latest PRO Report further explains why Friday’s Mariners vs. Royals total is more than worth a look.
