The Rays have won three of their last four scoring 19 runs over the 4 four game span. That’s a definite improvement over the pop gun offense that was shutout in three consecutive games that proceeded (coughs) the offensive explosion of late. Tampa Bay opens up a three game series against the Baltimore Orioles who they have yet to beat this season in five games. One of the losses came in Baltimore against tonight’s starter Wei-Yin Chen who was sharp picking up the win in a 6 1/3 inning 1 run performance. Jake Odorizzi gets the start for the home team where he has pitched well with a 3.13 earned run average in 7 starts. He did pitch great against St. Louis in his latest but did have two straight poor starts before that and had an uneven outing in his only start against the Orioles earlier this season allowing 3 runs on 5 hits and 3 walks over 5 innings.
Take Baltimore Orioles -101.
