Royals hope bats stay hot for trip to Tampa

The Kansas City Royals will head to Tampa Bay with some offensive momentum, even if they are coming off three straight defeats to the New York Yankees.

The Royals will need it, since they are facing a Rays pitching staff that has proven itself to be one of the best in baseball during the first month of the season.

And that staff figures to be focused with Tampa Bay on a four-game losing streak, after the Rays were swept by the resurgent Boston Red Sox in a three-game series.
