With the first month of the MLB season in the books, the surprising Tampa Bay Rays own the best record overall at 18-9. The Rays finished off a two-game sweep of the defending champion Red Sox yesterday and head to Kansas City tonight to take on the Royals, who have the worst record in the AL at 9-19. Kevin Cash will go with his “opener” Ryne Stanek (0-0, 1.32) in this one, while the Royals counter with Brad Keller (2-2, 3.41), who is coming off his five-game suspension for hitting the Chisox’ Tim Anderson on April 17.

When the Toronto Raptors acquired Kawhi Leonard in the NBA off-season, they were hoping the All-Star would get them over the postseason hump that has brought them down in the past.
