The Orioles look to continue their winning ways post All-Star Break versus the Tampa Bay Rays.
This is a comfortable series to go back to after the break for the Orioles as the Rays have not played well this season.
The Orioles picked things back up just before the break by winning 4 of their last 5 games after struggling for a short period.
The Rays continue to stink it up, they’ve lost 6 in a row.
Gallardo is pitching for the Orioles who is 3-1 despite his 5.82 era and 1.62 whip.
Archer is pitching for the Rays who is 4-12 with a 4.66 era and 1.44 whip.
The Orioles have some big bats, one of them was showcased in the Home Run Derby. Trumbo put on quite the show but fell short of Stanton.
The Orioles rank 5th in the league in runs per game with 5.1 but have scored just 22 in their last 5 games.
They’ve managed to win 4 of those past 5 games but it’s definitely not the offense we have come to see from the first half of the season.
Gallardo who just returned in mid June has pitched pretty well since his return and usually gets the win because the offense can generated so many runs.
His worst outing was July 4th against the Dodgers where he gave up 4 over 4 innings but besides that he’s given up 3 or 2 in his other 4 outings.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays average just 3.9 runs per game and are the 5th worst team in this stat category.
In their last 5 games they’ve scored just 9 runs. In their last 10 games, they’ve scored just 23 runs.
It doesn’t help that they’ve been riddled with injuries as well, including Kiermaier, Pearce and Jennings.
Chris Archer continues to be a disappointment this season and may been in need of a change in environment.
He allowed 5 over 6 innings against the Red Sox in his most recent outing on July 8th.
He had a quality outing on July 3rd vs the Tigers where he gave up none of 5.2 innings but has typically given up 4 runs over 6 innings as of late.
The Orioles offense may prove to be too much for Archer.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
The pitching matchup edge goes to the Rays because Archer still has a better era than Gallardo and is still capable of pitching a gem.
Offensively, though, Orioles dominate and it should prove to be too much for the Rays.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Orioles ML
Orioles haven’t been scoring as much in the recent short run and Archer is better than his era even though he seldom displays it.
Rays aren’t scoring much at all and even against Gallardo will likely struggle.
