The Rays have shown some life as of late, but they have been reeling for a few weeks before that, which is why they are in last place in the AL East.
Things have not been much better for the A’s, as they are in the basement of the AL West.
One thing that the A’s have going for them is that they are at home where they have won twice as many games as lost facing the Rays in the last several seasons.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay has been getting it done at the plate as of late, but for the season that has been their problem scoring runs. Their pitching has been decent, but they rank in the bottom 3rd of teams in terms of runs scored.
Drew Smyly (2-11 5.64 ERA) gets the starting nod for the Rays in this game and in his last outing he was less than sharp giving up 5 earned runs in 5 innings in a 7-4 loss to the Colorado Rockies.
The Rays have lost Smyly’s last 5 starts and that is not hard to believe since in that span he has given up 25 earned runs in 27 innings of work.
The Rays are 1-5 in Smyly’s last 6 road starts.
The Rays have the 3rd fewest road wins in the AL.
No shock the A’s are in the basement of their division not ranking in the top 20 in the Majors in runs scored or team ERA.
Kendall Graveman (6-6 4.25 ERA) will take the mound for the A’s and in his last start he gave up 2 earned runs in 7 innings in a 7-4 win over the Houston Astros.
Oakland has won Graveman’s last 7 starts and in that span he has only given up more than 2 earned runs once.
The A’s 4-0 in Graveman’s last 4 starts facing a team with a losing record.
The A’s are only 2-8 in Graveman’s last 10 starts facing teams from the AL East.
The A’s have struggled on the road and at home this season and they are several games under .500 in their house.
