The Royals haven't won three straight games in nearly a month, but they will have the chance to today with a win over the Rays.

A rebounding Jason Hammel will take the mound for the Royals, giving up just two runs over six innings in his last start after a stretch of giving up eight runs in just six innings.

He will be opposed by Rays ace Chris Archer, who is hot himself, having struck out 22 batters over his last 12 innings.

A win today would guarantee the Royals their first series win since the Angels series in mid-April.
