Tampa Bay Rays
Wouldn’t you know it, after winning all those games against the Nationals, Astros and Yankees, the Rays finally got through the woods and started their cozy July schedule with the Marlins. They lost game one of the series, though.
Miami kept it close with good pitching and won it in the ninth with an infield hit up the third baseline that Matt Duffy couldn’t get home in time.
Nathan Eovaldi was great again with six innings and two earned runs allowed. He did give up eight hits and a walk to his WHIP went up to 0.919.
This is what makes Tampa Bay a great underdog play but a spotty favorite: the pitching will always keep it close, but so will the offense. Two runs against Wei-Yin Chen and Miami’s bullpen is poor but Tampa Bay will always struggle to push runs across. I’d always rather have them +150 in a close game than favorites.
The Fish are 30–34 in their last 68 games after starting the season a miserable 5–17. The pitching has been a lot better and Trevor Richards looks prime to throw well on Tuesday night against the Rays offense I just wrote about.
It’s unclear who is going to start the Independence Day game. I don’t think Jose Urena will be back by then and Caleb Smith is now out for the season after opting for surgery just the other day. Dan Staily threw on July 1.
Sandy Alcantara will have had four days off when this game rolls around, feeling good about himself after collecting his first big league win at the end of June.
Alcantara came over from St. Louis in the Marcel Ozuna trade and looked sharp in five innings against the Mets in his first-ever start.
