Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa won two of three in St. Louis over the weekend but still sit very much on the outside, looking in on the AL Wild Card leaders.
The Rays are three out of the all-important second spot in the standings but must pass the Royals, Orioles, Angels, Mariners and Twins to get there. They can start with Kansas City, which is where they are to begin this week.
Austin Pruitt new gig as a starting pitcher was going well for a few starts but his last two have rendered 11 runs for the other teams in 10.2 innings.
The Rays have also lost his last four starts, even though he went either six or seven innings in three of them.
He gave up four home runs against the Blue Jays in less than four innings in his last start — a 7–6 Rays’ loss.
Kansas City Royals
No one had a worse weekend than the Royals, though. KC went into Cleveland and came away with nothing at all. The Indians beat them in three straight games by a combined score of 20–0. There’s still a month left in this season but the Royals look lifeless and under ground.
I’m not sure why the offense is abandoning this club.
The Royals’ lineup is stacked and I thought they would be thriving down the stretch of the dog days but the opposite has proved true since acquiring Melky Cabrera.
When things get this bad for an offense, it takes something strong to get it out of whatever it is that’s going on.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction: it goes under the number.
Neither starting pitcher inspires a whole lot of confidence but I do subtly like each one. I’m just fading both offenses, which have been lackluster in giving away opportunities to seize that second Wild Card spot.
