Click here to Watch Tampa Bay Devil Rays v Kansas City Royals Live
The Tampa Bay Rays got out to a good start in the second half of the MLB season as they managed to claw their way back to an 8-7 win over the Kansas City Royals. It was a back and forth game all around that saw Carl Crawford and Pat Burrell seal the victory for the Rays in the late innings. Burrell has three RBI’s and a home run with Crawford came up with 3 hits and three runs scored. It was a tough start for James Shields who gave up seven runs in just 5 innings but the Rays offence saved the day.
The Royals were unable to start the second half of the season on a winning note even though they got a three run homerun from Mike Jacobs and three RBI’s from Mark Teahen. It was a tough loss for the Royals who are trying to prove that their good start to the season was not a fluke as they have been struggling over the last month. They would love nothing more than to bounce back and take down the Rays in the next game on Saturday, July 18th.
