New, 202 comments

The Royals are looking to finally end a historical scoreless innings streak on offense. Now at 43 straight scoreless innings, the Royals will look to get their first run since a Brandon Moss solo home run in second inning of last Thursday's game. Standing in the way of that will by Rays righty Alex Cobb.
