Singer pitched six and a half innings against the Rays, giving up two runs (one earned) on three hits and two walks while also striking out 12 batters.

Kansas City Royals are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.
Kansas City Royals are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against NY Yankees.
The total has gone OVER in 11 of NY Yankees' last 14 games against Kansas City.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of NY Yankees' last 5 games at home.
The Yankees have struggled a bit this month as they're 10-12 so far in July but they're still the #1 offense and #2 defense in the league and they just took away one of the Royals best hitters. Andrew Benitendi is now a Yankee. The Royals rank at the bottom in offense and defense and are still without Salvador Perez. Brady Singer will get the mound and he has been pounded by the Yankees in his career while Taillon has absolutely dominated the Royals. This seems to easy, take the Yankees.
PICK: Yankees -1.5 (-110)
