Michael Massey's 10th sacrifice fly was the Kansas City Royals' 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg, Florida on Friday night.

Michael A. Taylor has been deployed. Starting 10th in second, Nicky Lopez bunted him to third. Massey's fly ball was easily plated to medium-deep right field Taylor.

Scott Barlow (5-4) pitched his second inning with his three strikeouts.

Tampa Bay's Roman He Quinn started as an automatic runner in the bottom of the 10th inning, but with two outs catcher Salvador He was caught by Perez trying to steal third base. Left fielder MJ Melendez made a diving catch on Francisco Mejia's shallow fly for the win.

Bobby Witt Jr. hit his two-run homer and Melendez was hit by a pitch where he was one run and walked. 4 hits.

After winning the Rays in Kansas City last month, Brady Singer said he was solid through six innings. He pitched five scoreless times before touching for two runs in the sixth. He finished that inning, allowing five hits with four walks and seven strikeouts. Rays' Harold Ramirez recorded a double and a run in his 2-for-4, while Randy Arrozarena recorded a single, two RBIs and a stolen base.

Like Singer, Shane McClanahan scored no decisions, but pitched seven innings. On his two hits he scored two runs, and on three walks he flew eight.

Jalen Beeks (2-3) was his second loss in three days, both in extra innings.

Singer, who hit a no-hitter in his fifth inning on July 23 and hit a career-high 12 his raises, is early in the second matchup. It was not so sharp in stages. He walked his three in his two innings of the first, but was able to escape the damage.

McClanahan hit his two-out walk to Melendez in his third, hitting a slider that didn't help much in the middle of the plate. Witt hit his 16th home run at 110.3 mph and disappeared into a deep pavement after 438 feet to take a two-run lead.

In the sixth, David Peralta's single and Ramirez's double gave the Rays a set. Following the strikeout, Arrozarena evened the score by grounding a two-run single to right and had 17 RBIs in his last 13 games.
