Neither starter has impressed this season, but Padres’ lefty Robbie Erlin did have a quality start in his last outing against the Giants. Erlin may be able to duplicate his last start tonight against the Royals who have struggled against left-handed pitching this season hitting .240 and averaging 2.45 runs per 9 innings. Kansas City has lost 5 in a row and there isn’t any reason to indicate a reversal of form at Petco Park this evening. Take San Diego -120.
