Kansas City Royals vs New York Mets
Pitching Matchup: Mets RH Jacob deGrom (7-7, 2.68 ERA) vs. Royals RH Jakob Junis (8-10, 4.80)
DeGrom's unbeaten streak reached seven starts on Sunday as he settled for a no-decision against Washington after allowing three unearned runs and four hits in five innings. The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner has permitted fewer than three earned runs in each turn and worked seven frames five times during his streak but has recorded only three victories. DeGrom has yet to face the Royals in the regular season but yielded four runs on six hits and three walks over five innings in a loss at Kansas City during the 2015 World Series.
Junis ended July with back-to-back losses but has won both of his starts thus far this month, with the victories coming on the road. The 26-year-old native of Illinois worked six innings at both Boston and Detroit, allowing a total of three runs while issuing one walk and registering 10 strikeouts. Junis has yet to face the Mets but is 2-2 with a 4.72 ERA in nine career interleague starts.
