Michael King (4-4, 4.09 ERA) vs. Tylor Megill (4-4, 3.49 ERA)

Michael King has an equal record in wins and losses but, he has a higher ERA this season of 4.09 which reflects that he is not invulnerable like Jordan, he conceded 13 home runs over 66 innings. However, King’s strikeout rate is equally good with 74 Ks, which underlines that he is also capable of being dominant when he is on the form, but here again the issue of inconsistency seems to rear its head.

Another strong sub from the Royals is Tylor Megill with a 3.49 ERA in 67 innings together with 83 strikes. This is seen through the numbers of walks he has given, which are twenty two, and the minimal three home runs having ratified him as a good starter who could prove hard for the hitters of the Padres. Megill’s skills of keeping the game low scoring may well prove to be the determining factor in this clash.
