Royals vs. Mariners prediction

I’m here with the Mariners. I was in Monday’s opening game in Kansas City and left with egg on my face afterward and it’s hard to come back here to Kansas City. Will things go well for the Royals? Absolutely, but Wacha isn’t necessarily the steady hand I thought he would become when the Royals picked him up this offseason, as he’s been hit pretty hard in recent games. I think the Mariners will bounce back here, as Gilbert threw well before an off-out last time, and Gilbert’s better performances have been on home turf this season anyway. Give me Seattle on this one.
