The Tampa Bay Rays and the Kansas City Royals will both be trying to pick up a win on Tuesday when they battle at Kauffman Stadium.

The Rays will trot Alex Cobb out to the mound in this one. Right hander Cobb has a 9-8 record and a 3.69 ERA this season.

The Royals will counter Cobb with Jake Junis. Right hander Junis has a 5.15 ERA to go along with a 5-2 record this season.

Cobb limited Toronto to four hits and one walk in his first game back from the disabled list but worked just 4 1/3 innings as his pitch count rose to 94. The 29-year-old Boston native has allowed fewer than two runs in six of his last nine outings and walked just five in his last five turns. Salvador Perez (5-for-12) and Eric Hosmer (5-for-14, two homers) have caused trouble for Cobb, who is 1-2 with a 4.55 ERA lifetime against the Royals.

Junis permitted one run over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against Colorado on Thursday and is 3-0 with a 3.18 ERA over his last five outings. The 24-year-old Illinois native registered 21 strikeouts and just two walks over 22 2/3 frames in that five-game span while yielding just one home run. Junis struck out two and walked two in one scoreless inning of relief to get the victory on May 9 in his only appearance against Tampa Bay.

Oddsmakers currently have the Royals listed as 111-moneyline favorites versus the Rays, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

Logan Morrison hopes to continue his power surge in his hometown on Tuesday, when the red-hot Tampa Bay Rays visit the slumping Kansas City Royals, who have been shut out in four straight games. Morrison belted his third homer in two days as the Rays crushed the Royals 12-0 on Monday for their first win in nine contests at Kansas City and moved within 2 ½ games of the American League’s second wild card.

Morrison is 6-for-13 with five extra-base hits and six RBIs in the last three contests for Tampa Bay, which has won six of its last eight contests while belting 21 homers during a nine-game span. Meanwhile, the Royals are on an historic run of offensive futility – becoming the first team in the majors to be blanked in four consecutive games since 1992 and going scoreless for a club-record 43 innings after managing just two hits Monday in their fifth straight loss. Kansas City, which is still is just three games out in the AL wild-card race, can break the major-league record of 48 straight innings without a run set by the 1906 Philadelphia Athletics and matched by the 1968 Chicago Cubs. Lorenzo Cain recorded a pair of doubles for Kansas City’s only two hits and is 7-for-16 versus the Rays in 2017 while hitting .367 lifetime against them.

The Royals were a 12-0 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Rays. That made winners of bettors who got Tampa Bay at -109 on the moneyline, while the total score (12) was good news for OVER bettors.
