The Baltimore Orioles will go with Jorge Lopez this Thursday, as they take on the AL East leaders the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.
The Orioles are now in complete free fall losing 13 straight games, and although it has taken some bad luck and variance for them to lose that many game in a row, they have rarely played good baseball and look entirely noncompetitive in plenty of these games during this brutal streak.
Baltimore still has a somewhat decent batting lineup and it just got better with the return of Ryan Mountcastle who looks to be a prospect who will turn into a very solid MLB player, as he has been one of the few bright spots for this team this year despite dealing with injury issues.
Jorge Lopez will have a very tough task on his hands here and although he has shown flashes of being a decent pitcher he just has not been good for the majority of the season and with the way this Rays batting lineup is shaping up it is tough to see him going too deep here.
Tampa Bay Rays
It is hard to say the Rays are a surprise this year, as they were in the World Series last year, but it seemed like a lot of people thought their would be some pull back in terms of this Rays team, but that clearly has not happened, as they are now the clear cut favorites to win the AL East.
Obviously this team is normally known for their pitching staff and they are still quite solid, but this Rays offense has performed at an extraordinary level as they are ranked second in terms of overall offense.
Tampa will likely go with another bullpen game, as they have no listed starting pitcher for this one but they have an outstanding bullpen who will be in a great spot to get the job done as a unit against these Orioles bats.
