Kansas City Royals
On Thursday, the Rays scored in four of the first five innings and then put things away with a crooked number in the eighth to defeat the Royals, 12-1.
Chris Archer struck out 11 over eight shutout innings and Logan Morrison, Rickie Weeks Jr. and Colby Rasmus all homered. Rasmus’ shot in the eighth cleared loaded bases and officially signaled route.
Jason Hammel got rocked for 13 hits and seven runs but the good news is that he didn’t waste many pitches. He made it through a clean seven innings and spared the bullpen on a night that could have taken a toll.
Jason Vargas will pitch the fourth and final game of this series this afternoon, the Royals looking to take three of four. Vargas has a 1.19 ERA on the season.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay also has a rested ‘pen after Archer’s eight innings of work. Jake Odorizzi takes the mound for the home team, which is trying to rally for a series split.
JO has given up just five hits in his last two starts, a combined 12 innings. Prior to that, he left after an inning in Boston and gave up two hits in six hits against the Jays. Overall, he’s given up just 15 hits in 25 innings. For a guy who doesn’t walk many, that will get it done.
So Odorizzi’s WHIP: 0.76. A night after scoring one meager run in the ninth inning, Kansas City could struggle to score again.
