Royals turn to Bailey to break curse vs. Rays

The Tampa Bay Rays look to extend a nine-game winning streak against the Kansas City Royals in the second game of a three-game series Tuesday at Tropicana Field -- a streak dating back to the final game of the 2017 regular season.

The Royals will send Homer Bailey to the mound to also try to stop a four-game losing streak.

The Rays snapped their own four-game losing streak with a 6-3 victory against the Royals on Monday and now sit at 15-8, the best record in baseball. The Royals are just 7-16, a half-game better than the Miami Marlins for the worst record in the majors.
