It was a so-so start for Cashner in his last outing, picking up his second win of the season against the lowly Chicago White Sox. He went five innings giving up eight hits and two earned runs while he struck out four and walked three.
When you own a 4.39 BB/9 and give up eight hits in a game to only give up two runs and get the win, that is very fortunate to say the least. When you walk nearly as many batters and you strike out, your going to have a porous 4.72 ERA and 5.40 FIP.
Baltimore has just been getting by in the last week winning three of their last seven contests. During that time their lineup is slashing .240/.306/.366 to go with 17 extra-base hits and 25 RBI.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay is up to their usual new-found tricks of starting a pitcher from the bullpen. Stanek will start to contest, but will probably eventually give way to Ryan Yarbrough.
In five innings of work, Stanek has given up only one run, while posting an 8:3 strikeout-to-walk ratio. On the season Yarbrough has a 4-2 record while he owns a 3.54 ERA and 3.92 FIP in 40.2 innings of work.
Tampa Bay has been playing mediocre baseball in the last week winning three of their last six contests. During that time their lineup is slashing .240/.325/.370 to go with 13 extra-base hits and 21 RBI.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:Tampa Bay edges out Baltimore
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Rays -137
I like this method Tampa Bay has been rolling with starting a relief pitcher to pound the strike zone in the first inning and taking care of the opponents top hitters while also taking off some pressure for the starting pitcher.
I’ll give the pitching edge to Tampa, while neither lineup has been too hot as of late, but Tampa Bay gets to face a suspect Cashner. Tampa Bay is deservedly favored in this one.
