Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa salvaged the finale in New York on Sunday but the Rays lost the three before that and some important ground in a tight AL playoff race. Tampa is still right in the Wild Card hunt and isn’t out of the division, either.
This will be a big series in Houston, though. The Astros haven’t played their best baseball lately but they are still 32 games over .500 with two months to play.
Alex Cobb has gone at least seven innings in his last four starts. He’s only given up five runs in all of them together, too.
Charlie Morton isn’t throwing the ball quite so well but his ERA is down to 3.86 and he looks like a playoff starter for Houston. He walked one and struck out nine in his last start against Philadelphia – a 5-0 win.
Houston finished its series in Detroit with losses on Saturday and Sunday. They still have a 16-game lead in the West. The Astros will stay on cruise control until further notice. They just have to be careful not to fall asleep at the wheel.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction: the Rays might just steal game one on the road.
Given the prices, I’m leaning toward a play on the Rays. I give them a good shot with Cobb throwing as well as he is.
