This is the first of two games between these two teams tomorrow. Tropicana Field has never had a rain delay in its history so this isn’t a makeup game but a nostalgically scheduled doubleheader by Major League Baseball.
Sonny Gray will start for Oakland. He’s looked ok this season but you think back to how good he looked three, four years ago and it’s a puzzle why he’s seemingly taken a step back as he’s come into his prime years.
Regardless, contending teams are looking at Gray and his name will float around the rumor mill as we get closer to July. He’s got a 1.21 WHIP this season and opponents are hitting .237. He could help any contender, especially one with an established ace, like, say, the Houston Astros.
Tampa Bay Rays
Even when Erasmo Ramirez starts, he isn’t likely to go but more than half the ballgame. This will be his sixth start of the season, and third straight, to go along with 12 relief appearances.
Ramirez is 3-1 after suffering his first loss of the season against Seattle in his last outing. He gave up four runs on seven hits in four-and-two-thirds innings in that one.
Ramirez does a pretty good job at keeping the ball down, which is a winning formula against Oakland. Combine that with the fact that he’s only walked eight this season and he looks like he’s set for a decent outing this afternoon.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction: Gray and Ramirez keep it close.
The challenge Tampa faces is that Ramirez won’t get deep into the game and then it has another game right after this one. The bullpen could be taxed. The A’s would love seven innings out of Sonny.
