Tampa Bay Rays v Kansas City Royals - Game Two Photo by Ed Zurga/Getty Images

Yesterday was a bad day for the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Kansas City Royals took both games of the double-header, the first by the score of 3-2, and then the second by the score of 8-2.

Fortunately, the New York Yankees also lost, so the Rays still have a two game lead in the division.

Nothing really went right for the Rays as they hit the ball hard in both games and had ample opportunities to score but just couldn’t come through. Blake Snell struggled in his second consecutive outing since returning from the Injured List, only lasting three innings. The highlight of the day was the tremendous outing given by Jalen Beeks, as the southpaw delivered 6 23 nearly perfect innings on the mound, racking up six strikeouts during the one hit performance.

This afternoon, the Rays will look to Charlie Morton as they hope to salvage a series split in Kansas City.
