This is our Game #2 Preview for Saturday.
Tampa Bay and Oakland split their 70s-themed doubleheader at Tropicana Field on Saturday and the Rays have the chance to make it three of four against the A’s this weekend with a win on Sunday.
Oakland pushed the nightcap over with a sac fly in the ninth inning to extend its lead to five. It was 2-1 going into the sixth but the Tampa Bay bullpen let us down. Both games went over on Saturday.
Jesse Hahn makes his second start since a brief stint on the Disabled List. He threw six shutout innings against Toronto in a 4-1 Oakland win earlier in the week. He’s no slouch going up against Chris Archer.
Tampa Bay Rays
Archer struck out 11 in seven innings against the White Sox in his last start. He’s putting up huge K numbers this year – 106 in 86 innings.
The WHIP is also low at 1.15 but his ERA isn’t quite where you might expect based on those two numbers. Archer is just 4-4 with a 3.65 ERA because he just can’t seem to get through an entire start without getting a little dirty.
Archer has gone over 100 pitches in every start this year so perhaps he’s been overused. The Rays better keep him healthy. Matt Andriese left his start yesterday in the second inning with shoulder discomfort and he’s just back from the DL.
On the other hand, Tampa Bay isn’t likely to pay any of these guys once they hit the open market so it doesn’t have nearly the responsibility of some of these other teams with their pitchers.
