The Baltimore Orioles will welcome in their divisional rivals the Tampa Bay Rays into Camden Yards this Sunday in what might be a tighter game on paper given the question marks that come with Chris Archer.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays are absolutely flying lately going 9-1 in their last 10 games, and they have yet another great chance to pick up a win here against the Orioles who they are big favorites against here.
The main reason for Tampa being so good this year is their offense who has been a mix of both good and clutch which has proven to be a powerful duo for them ranking in 2nd in totals offense.
There have been a host of guys who have been getting the job done with the bat this year with Brandon Lowe , Austin Meadows, and Randy Arozarena all having nice years and that likely does not stop here in Baltimore.
Chris Archer will make his come back start here, so it will be tough to project how well he will pitch and just how long they will allow him to go here. Archer does get a sneaky tough matchup here against the Orioles as well, as they have not been half bad with the bats this year.
The Baltimore Orioles did not have many expectations for this season, but it probably has been worse then even they thought it would be coming into this contest with a brutal 40-87 record, so there is plenty of work for management to get done on this roster in the offseason.
The only thing that has made this team remotely competitive is the batting lineup, as their pitching staff and especially their bullpen has been dreadful, so they do have a tough task here on Sunday.
Spenser Watkins will get the start here entering the contest with a 7.07 ERA and a 2-6 record and his recent outings have not helped those numbers allowing 18 runs over his last 3 outings, so it could be a good day for the Rays bats.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
I really do not expect much from Archer here, as he was not even all that great before the injury and it is not like this is one of the worst batting lineups in the league. On the other side of things, Spenser Watkins does not project out to be a great MLB starter and I cannot see him having much success here at all and if he is out of the game early then the onus will be placed on the Orioles bullpen and that rarely turns out well. With that said, I can see this game hitting the over, as it is only listed at ten and I can see both of these teams scoring plenty of runs.
