So much for the Rays winning games this season by pitching and defense with little help from their offense. That thought went out the window as Tampa Bay’s bats erupted in a 14-5 series opening win on Monday.
Atlanta needs to regroup after Monday’s horrible 9-run loss that saw Tampa Bay put up 8 runs in the 4th inning alone. The loss snapped a 2-game win streak for the Braves.
Tuesday’s game two definitely has the potential for offensive firepower as Atlanta put up 14 runs as well in Sunday’s series finale vs. the Mets. The Braves bats were pretty quiet on Monday as they had more runs (5) than hits (4).
Atlanta did get HRs from Matt Adams and Dansby Swanson on Monday but getting bats on the ball was few and far between. The Braves struck out a whopping 19 times in the series opener.
Atlanta will send youngster Kyle Wright to the hill to try and even up the series on Tuesday. Wright started four games last year but finished with an 0-3 record and an 8.69 ERA. He’s never faced a Rays batter.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay wrapped up their series with Toronto with 4-1 and 6-5 victories on Saturday and Sunday. The offense came out of the woodwork vs. the Braves though with 14 runs on 13 hits.
A lot of Rays batters had big nights but it was Hunter Renfroe with 2HRs and 4 RBI that led the surge. Jose Martinez, Joey Wendle, and Mike Zunino also added long balls for Tampa Bay.
Yonny Chirinos is healthy after testing positive for COVID earlier in the Spring but being quarantined could have him a bit rusty. Chirinos has only pitched four innings to live hitters in Summer camp.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Braves are 6-2 last 8 on turf
- Rays are 21-5 last 26 home games
- Over is 9-0 in Rays last 9 interleague games
Free Atlanta Braves vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
Usually after an offensive showing like Tampa Bay put up on Monday the bats go cold the next night. With the unknowns of both Wright and Chirinos on the hill however the hitters have the edge here.
