Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays got a win on Friday in Toronto but could only muster two runs over the weekend and dropped the final two games of the series.
Chris Archer got back to dominating on Sunday. It was the bullpen that lost the rubber match, Alex Colome giving up the winning runs in the eighth.
The Rays will travel back to their home state for an interleague matchup with Miami. Jake Odorizzi returns from the Disabled List to start for the first time since leaving the game two weeks ago in Boston with a bad hammy.
Prior to his early exit at Fenway, Odorizzi had gone six innings in each of his first two starts and given up nine hits (three of which were home runs) and six runs.
The Marlins’ bats finally came alive just in time to salvage a game in their series with Pittsburgh.
Just Bour put the team on his back, driving in the first six Miami runs with four RBI hits between the second and seventh innings.
Wei-Yin Chen makes his fifth start in the series opener against the Rays. His 1.24 WHIP was seriously aided by a start two weeks ago when he no-hit the Mariners over seven innings before being lifted after 100 pitches.
The Rays have a .239 batting average against Chen in 138 career at-bats.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction: the runs come late in a starting pitching duel.
“Duel” might give the wrong impression. Both starters will probably give up at least a run or two but will also navigate the opposing lineups adequately to keep it tight early on.
