(MLB) Kansas City vs. Tampa Bay, 05/26/2024 1:40 PM, Score: 1 - 4
Money Line: -117.00 Tampa Bay (Home)
Result: Win
At 1:40 ET, my Early Riser selection is on Tampa Bay Rays. The Royals are on a winning streak. The Rays are on a losing streak. Streaks don't last forever though and both will come to an abrupt end this afternoon.

Taj Bradley struck out 10 without walking a batter in last start. In his 3 starts, he has 23 strikeouts (in 18 innings) against 3 free passes. That shows the type of stuff that he's got. After 4 straight games against AL East teams, he will be pleased to see a team from the outside his division, one which is unfamiliar with him. On the season, Bradley has a 0.944 WHIP. That's a lot better than Wacha, who checks in with a 1.323 WHIP. Wacha is 0-2 with a 4.63 ERA when pitching during the day. Play on Tampa Bay.
