The Tampa Bay Rays will look to continue their ascent to yet another AL East title this Friday, as they take on the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays are absolutely rolling at this point going 8-1 in their last 9 games and it really is not much of a surprise with this team having their batting lineup and pitching staff in great spots. The bullpen has been excellent all year, and the addition of Nelson Cruz has really taken this team to a new level and it will be exciting to see what they are able to do this coming postseason.
It is not like the Rays have been playing against poor teams recently either, with impressive wins over the Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago White Sox in recent days, so they should have plenty of confidence coming in here to take on the Orioles.
Shane McClanahan will be on the mound for this one and he is another guy who should be coming in here with some confidence, as he is coming off of a nice outing against this Orioles team going 5 innings and only giving up 1 run.
The Baltimore Orioles have finally broken out of their slump with back to back wins against the LA Angels who really came into that series flat, but the Orioles were able to take full advantage to pick up two nice wins.
Baltimore has had a poor pitching staff all year, but their batting lineup really has been okay for most of the year and they seem to be getting better with the return of Anthony Santander and Ryan Mountcastle who are really hammering the ball as of late.
Matt Harvey has not had much success this year coming into the contest with an ERA over 6 and he has been especially poor as of late giving up 12 runs in his last 3 outings with one of those games coming against the Rays.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
The Orioles have been a bit better as of late, but I think there recent success has more to do with the Angels simply not showing up as opposed to them playing great. I also can see McClanahan going deep here based off of his last game against this team and if he puts up 5 strong innings again he will put the Rays in an excellent position to cover this spread on the runline.
