Baltimore couldn’t get much going offensively for the third game out of four against Cleveland this week and lost the finale 6-3. The Orioles scored four runs in their three losses to the Tribe.
Wade Miley’s ERA continued to climb after he gave up four runs in five innings. It seems destined to reach 5.00 but, for now, next stop: 4.50. He gave up eight hits, walked two and was hit with his fifth loss this season.
Baltimore will travel overnight to Tampa Bay, where the Rays have been waiting and enjoyed a day off on Thursday.
Ubaldo Jimenez is back in the starting rotation and pitched very well his last time out – four hits, two earned in seven innings against the White Sox.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay took two of three from Cincinnati down at the Trop and then got to enjoy its day off yesterday. The Rays have to be feeling good, three games above .500 and squarely in third place in the East.
Chris Archer will get the ball for the start of their weekend series.
Archer has completed at least six innings in six straight outings but his ERA nearly hasn’t changed. It’s a very good mark (3.75) but you know Archer isn’t satisfied.
His WHIP is 1.18 and he’s limiting opponents to a .229 batting average against but he also can’t seem to put up zeroes in the game log, every start seems to yield at least two or three runs.
It won’t be easy to shutdown Baltimore, even if the O’s aren’t swinging very hot bats at the moment.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction: the Rays should win.
The Rays are playing much better baseball than the O’s at the moment and have the decisive travel advantage. Tampa also has its ace against a guy who has struggled to keep his job in the starting rotation. The Rays have just about all the check marks.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: No Action (Lean Baltimore)
But they’re being priced like it, too. This is a no-go for us but I do lean Baltimore because of the near triple-up payout.
