Kansas City stopped the Rays long winning streak. If they can win again today they take the series.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals come into today just a game under .500. I thought they could be a sleeper team this season but they have been streaky. Adalberto Mondesi is back in the lineup and maybe he gives them a boost.
Brady Singer has been just OK this season. The big righty keeps the ball in the park and has his moments but the Royals are just 3-6 in his starts so far this season.
Kansas City’s bullpen is just below league average this season. That is going to have to improve if they are going to stay in the race in the AL Central.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays saw their 11 game winning streak fall to start the series but after yesterday’s win they are primed to start another one. The bats have been quiet in the series so far though, just three runs through a couple of games.
Lefty phenom Shane McCanahan has been goog but not great since making his debut a few weeks back. He has not thrown more than 80 pitches or pitched even six innings yet. The team is 4-1 in his five outings.
The Tampa bullpen has been improving as the season has progressed. They are tied with San Diego for the MLB lead with 20 bullpen wins, though their “dom” stats are down.
Free Kansas City Royals vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
Not much value wth the Rays on the money line here but the run line is solid. They have been winning with McClanahan even if the rookie is just a piece of the puzzle.

The Rays are doing it again. On paper this team is worse than last year’s though you wouldn’t knot it on the field.
