In a battle of the Sunshine State the Rays host the Marlins in a game where both
teams are out of the playoff picture. Miami has been out of the playoff race for months now and the Rays were in it for a while, but in the last few weeks have
struggled to be .500 and they are coming off being swept by the Toronto Blue Jays in 3-game series.
Since August 31st the Marlines have the best record in baseball and they have won 5 straight and are coming off a sweep of the Atlanta Braves.
The Rays have won 7 of their last 10 home games facing the Marlins.
The offense has been the issue for the Marlins this season, as they only rank 29th in runs scored and the loss of slugger Giancarlo Stanton was a big one.
However, they have scored 27 runs in their last 3 games and rookie 1B Justin Bour is hitting .375 with 7 homers and 17 RBI over his last 12 games.
The Marlins will start rookie Adam Conley tonight and in his last outing he only gave up 1 earned run in 6 innings in a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.
Conley is 3-0 with an ERA of 2.96 ERA over his last 5 starts, which were all Miami wins.
Tonight will be Conley’s first career start against the Rays.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay ranks a legit 10th in team ERA, but only 26th in the Majors in runs scored. In being swept in their last series their pitching was tagged up for a combined 20 runs.
Matt Moore goes for Tampa tonight and after struggling, big time, after coming back from the DL he has been solid in his last 2 starts.
In his career Moore is 2-0 with a 2.77 ERA in 2 starts against the Marlins, but he has not faced them since the 2012 season.
The Rays have only won 1 of their last 7 home games when Moore has gotten the starting nod.
Moore has been solid as of late, but the hot Miami bats will get to him tonight.
