The Rays snapped their 2-game losing streak in their last game against the Dodgers now they head to face the other L.A. team in the Angels, who also snapped their 2 game losing streak in their last game.
The Rays are in 4th place in the AL East 4 games back of the Boston Red Sox.
The Angels are in 3rd place in the AL West 4 games back of the Seattle Mariners.
The Rays are 18-8 in their last 26 games facing the Angels in La La Land.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays have gotten solid pitching on the season ranking 8th in team ERA but their offense has been sluggish only ranking 26th in runs scored.
Chris Archer (1-4 5.01 ERA) is the supposed Ace of the Rays’ staff and while he has gotten off to a rough start he has had 2 straight solid outings. In his last start he gave up 2 earned runs in 6 innings in a 4-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.
The Rays have won Archer’s last 2 starts after losing his first 4 of the season.
Archer is 4-1 with a 2.97 ERA in 5 career starts against the Angels.
In Archer’s last 2 starts he has only given up 2 earned runs while in his first 4 of the season he had an ERA north of 7.00.
The Rays are only 3-5 on the road this season.
Reigning MVP Mike Trout has gotten back on track after a slow start, but the Angels are still struggling to score runs only ranking 23rd in that category. Their pitching has been pretty solid ranking 13th in team ERA.
Cory Rasmus (0-1 4.40 ERA) will likely get the start tonight if starter Garrett Richards is scratched. He is a relief pitcher and this will be his first start of the season if he gets the call. He has appeared in 8 games this season all Angels losses.
In the last 2 seasons Rasmus has only made 3 starts.
The Angels’ offense has showed life as of late, but getting to Archer, who looks to be back on track after a rough start may be an uphill battle. Still, the Rays have lost their last 5 road games when Archer has gotten the starting nod.
The Angels are 0-4 in Rasmus’ last 4 starts.
This season the Halos are 6-6 at home and they are back in their house after a 6 game road trip where they went 2-4.
