ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. The off-day and a temporary reset cant get here soon enough for the Royals. Amidst the angst about the performance of the bullpen, the Tampa Bay Rays did the majority of the damage against the Royals starter for the second straight night.
The Royals fell behind by four runs in the first two innings on their way to a 5-2 loss in front of 8,298 at Tropicana Field on Tuesday night as Royals pitcher Homer Bailey had his worst start of the season.
The loss extended the Royals losing streak to five games, and dropped their record on the road trip to 2-7 with one game remaining.
