The Tampa Bay Rays will be fighting to snap a losing streak on Wednesday when they take on the Kansas City Royals at Tropicana Field.

Jason Hammel will be the starting pitcher for the Royals on this day. Right hander Hammel is 1-3 this season with a 5.53 ERA.

Starting this game for the Rays will be Chris Archer. The right hander has a 3.57 ERA to go along with a 2-1 record this season.

Hammel is coming off his best start of the season, which resulted in his first victory in a Kansas City uniform. The 34-year-old native of South Carolina, who signed with the Royals in February, limited Cleveland to one run and three hits over six innings on Friday after lasting only three frames in each of his previous two turns. Hammel, who spent the first three seasons of his career with Tampa Bay, is 2-2 with a 4.26 ERA in six starts against his former team.

Archer registered a season-high 11 strikeouts against Toronto on Friday but did not factor in the decision after allowing three runs in six innings. The 28-year-old from North Carolina, who is winless in his last four turns, yielded just one run over 7 1/3 frames against the Blue Jays on the road in his previous outing but again settled for a no-decision. Archer has yet to defeat Kansas City in his career, going 0-4 with a 5.63 ERA in five starts.

Oddsmakers currently have the Rays listed as 187-moneyline favorites versus the Royals, while the game’s total is sitting at 7½.

The Kansas City Royals‘ struggles on the road are becoming a distant memory as they vie for their third straight win away from home when they continue their four-game series Wednesday against the host Tampa Bay Rays. Kansas City entered the set with a seven-game road losing streak but won the first two contests, including a 12-inning affair on Tuesday.

Mike Moustakas belted a solo homer in the 12th to provide a 7-6 victory for the Royals, who rallied from a three-run deficit and have a chance to clinch their first series win since sweeping a three-game set from the Los Angeles Angels from April 14-16. Tim Beckham and Logan Morrison each drove in a pair of runs as the Rays suffered their third consecutive loss. Morrison homered for the third time in six games for Tampa Bay, which saw every starter in its lineup register at least one hit. Corey Dickerson recorded his second straight multi-hit performance and is 6-for-13 over his last three contests.

In their last action, Tampa Bay was a 7-6 loser on the road against the Royals. Bettors on Kansas City at 153 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (13) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.

Last time out for Kansas City, they were a 7-6 winner as they battled the Rays on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Royals at 153 were rewarded, while the 13 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
