Tampa Bay Rays
Jalen Beeks got bombed in Baltimore and the Orioles beat the Rays on Sunday, 8–3. Baltimore came back to split the series by winning the last two and Tampa Bay missed a chance to put some pace between itself and Oakland.
Tampa isn’t playing the Orioles and Mariners anymore, or at least not for a while. This is the penultimate difficult push on the Rays’ schedule with three in Houston followed by three vs. Cleveland.
Then it’s back to cupcakes before finishing September at the Dodgers and then vs. both the Red Sox and Yankees. It would be a big step for Tampa Bay to simply finish this week on top of the A’s.
But let’s spend some time on the starting pitching matchup because it’s an excellent one. Charlie Morton will face his former team in the ballpark he started their eventual World Series Game 7 victory.
It’s almost forgotten the Astros let Morton walk, though he may have just wanted to go to Florida, where he resides and has family. He hasn’t missed a start this season and has given up just 12 homer runs in over 160 innings. He’s just 1–2 this month but still 13–5 overall.
Verlander is 15–5 and he hasn’t missed a start either. He’s given up 33 home runs but he’s struck out 239.
He won’t reach 300 this year, which he has never done, but he’ll lead the league for a second consecutive season, so long as he stays healthy down the home stretch.
