Royals counting on starting staff against inconsistent Rays

The Kansas City Royals are off to their best start since their World Series championship season of 2015. They have a lock-down bullpen, as they did in 2015, and they've had clutch hitting recently from 2015 World Series MVP Salvador Perez.

Perez has had a game-winning home run in each of the past two games.

But Royals manager Mike Matheny also is getting strong enough outings from his starting rotation to keep his team in the game for the bullpen.
