Following the All-Star break, MLB action is back. As they begin the 2nd part of their campaign with a three-game series against the Kansas City Royals on Friday July 14th, the Tampa Bay Rays will be playing away from home.
The Cleveland Guardians are at this point behind the Kansas City Royals by 19.5 games, placing them bottom in the AL Central. They share the poorest record in MLB with the Oakland Athletics, and they’ll face a hungry Rays squad in a difficult series. Although Kansas City are 3-7 in their past 10 matches, they defeated the Guardians in their most recent matchup.
For the Royals in this game, Alec Marsh makes his 3rd start of the year and in the major leagues. He has 9 innings of play under his belt this year and stands 0-2 with an ERA of 7.00, a WHIP of 1.778, 7 walks, and 10 strikeouts. On July 5, Marsh made his most recent start versus the Twins away from home, and he was unsuccessful. In a match that the Royals lost 5-0, he pitched 5 innings, surrendering 3 runs on 3 hits, 3 walks, and 5 strikeouts.
The Tampa Bay Rays are at the moment leading the AL East and the Baltimore Orioles by 2 games. They have had outstanding showings in every facet of the game and have remained the top side in the majors for a large portion of the year. They might have had the greatest record in MLB if not for the team’s most recent downturn. Before their recent victory, the Rays had dropped their previous 7 contests.
In this game, Rays pitcher Tyler Glasnow is making his 9th start of the year on the mound. He enters the game with a record of 2-3, an ERA of 4.10, a WHIP of 1.224, 16 walks, and 64 strikeouts in 41.2 innings of play. In his most recent start, which occurred last Friday at home versus the Braves, Glasnow suffered the loss. He pitched 5.2 innings in a 2-1 Rays loss, surrendering 2 runs on 2 hits, 1 walk, and 8 strikeouts.
