After a hot start and a little dip the Orioles have been pretty steady atop the American League East.
They enter the weekend looking to extend their lead against the last place Rays.
For Tampa they can take some solace in being the best last place team in the league but I think most saw more of this club and you have to wonder if they might start selling some guys.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa just got swept by Cleveland and in familiar fashion the offense was absent.
They scored just five runs over the three games and are averaging just a smidge over 4/game.
It is so interesting how this club is among the leaders in homers but is unable to manufacture runs like they have in the past. That used to be their identity.
Matt Moore is coming off back to back good starts for the first time since April. He is always going to walk some guys but against a swing and miss lineup, when he is on, he can be brilliant.
His lone start against Baltimore this season was a quality one but with just one run of support he took the loss. The Tampa bullpen is a collection of mostly solid unknowns.
Baltimore continues to be slugging their way to first place in the division.
They lead the Majors in homers and that is without Chris Davis or Adam Jones off to monster starts.
Mark Trumbo has 21 dingers already and a fade has to be expected but with Davis, Jones and of course Manny Machado, there is no reason this team can’t be leading the league when the season is done.
They might need to.
Yovani Gallardo has only made 5 starts this season and the results have not been great. He has yet to pitch more than six innings and seems to be getting by more on guile.
Against Tampa the key will be simply keeping the ball in the yard so he is probably alright for this one.
The Baltimore bullpen has been fantastic all season long and they have needed to be because their starters are average at best.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
The Rays seems to only win when their pitching performs and in Moore they have a guy who can dominate a lineup.
The lefty should be able to control Davis but most of the damage is done from the right side so it might not be the best situation.
Gallardo is going to need run support, which the O’s can definitely provide. I am not a big fan of his so I am thinking this could be a decent spot to fade Baltimore.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over
With the Orioles lineup and the Rays ability to hit home runs this season I like the over in this one. I am expecting something in the 8.5 to 9 range. As long as it is not 10 then go for it.
I think we can get there by the seventh inning and not have to sweat.
