ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. The Royals wrapped up their 10-game road swing with a 10-run performance.
Jakob Junis handcuffed the Tampa Bay Rays lineup for five innings before taking a line drive off his hand and leaving with a seven-run lead, and the Royals offense kept applying pressure in a 10-2 victory in front of an announced crowd of 9,502 Wednesday afternoon at Tropicana Field.
The Royals (8-17) avoided a three-game sweep and snapped a five-game losing streak. They have an off day followed by a return to their home ballpark on Friday night to face the LA Angels.
