The Royals are catching fire right now.
They look to complete a 3 game sweep of the Rays when the two teams meet on Wednesday.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays have seen their pitching let them down through the first two games of this series.
The Rays have allowed 16 runs in 2 games and they find themselves in last place of the AL East. Tampa Bay’s ERA sits 14th in the league as they allow nearly 4 runs per game.
Offensively, the Rays rely on the homerun ball. Tampa Bay sits 4th in the league, as they have hit 70 homeruns.
The Rays will send out Chris Archer here. Archer has been the biggest disappointment for this Rays team on the year. With just a 3-6 record, Archer has compiled a 4.62 ERA.
Archer has dropped back to back starts and has allowed 10 runs total (7 earned) over his last 2 starts.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals are surging right now and are making some noise in the AL Central.
Kansas City has won 5 straight games and have jumped to the top of the AL Central. The Royals are doing this without some star players too, which has made this run much more impressive.
They did it in come from behind fashion against the White Sox, but have gotten off to the early leads against the Rays and held firm the rest of the way.
Kansas City will send out Danny Duffy here. Duffy, who was a bullpen pitcher to start the year, is still searching for his first decision. Duffy continues to try and build up his arm strength, as he had his longest outing of the season last time out.
However, he allowed 5 runs in the 5.1 innings of work, which led to a blown lead against the Twins.
