The Rays need to keep playing good baseball if they wish to get back to the top of their division. There was no reason for them to lose to the Orioles.
Tampa is the better team and I look for them to be sharp in this game.
Keegan Akin has yet to record a win this year and I do not see that changing on Wednesday. I look for the Rays to hit him around well.
I will take the Rays on the run line here.
