The Royals have lost 2 of their last 3 games with him on the hill, but they are 14-5 his last 19 starts overall. The Reds have won 2 of their last 3 games with Raisel Iglesias on the hill and he went 6 innings and gave up 3 earned runs in his last outing.

The Reds are 2-5 in Iglesias’ last 7 starts as an underdog and why go against that trend facing the Royals, who will win this game.
