The struggling Rays take on the bottom feeder Twins. Both teams have not played well this season. The Twins have lost 3 straight and are 4-6 in their last 10.
The Rays have lost 4 straight and are 2-8 in their last 10 games. Odorizzi is tossing for the Rays with a 2-3 record and 3.36 era.
Nolasco goes for the Twins who is 2-3 with a 5.28 era.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays have just stunk it up lately, they’ve lost 4 straight, 7 of their last 8 games and 10 of their last 12 games.
They aren’t scoring much and that is the main reason, they’ve mustered up just 25 runs over their last 8 games.
1 of those games they scored 9, so if you remove that game from the equation, that’s just 16 runs in the other 7 games.
That’s barely 2 runs per game. The bottom of the order is just horrible and injuries to Kiermaier and Forsythe are obviously hurting them.
There is no solution in the near future.
Odorizzi has pitched pretty good this season with a 3.36 era. He’s given up a total of just 4 runs in his last 3 starts so this should help the Rays if they can mustard up a few runs.
He gave up just 2 in his last start over 7 innings and tossed a shutout in his start before that over 5 innings against the Marlins.
The Twins have been slightly better as of late but very inconsistent and unreliable overall.
Their record is 15-37 which is the absolute worst in the MLB. Prior to losing their current 3 straight, they swept the Mariners impressively.
They only scored 7 runs in their last 3 games so we can’t be too impressed by them with their current stretch.
They are 27th in run production in the league so I wouldn’t anticipate them scoring more than 2 on Odorizzi.
Nolasco has been unreliable for the Twins and his 5.28 era accurately reflects his typically performance.
He did have a decent outing against the high powered Mariners in his last start giving up just 2 runs over 6 innings, so just maybe he is turning the corner.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
This game is going to be really close considering both teams just cannot score reliably and consistently. The pitching matchup favors the Rays so I think they come out on top by a slim margin.
Take the Rays.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Rays ML
I expect the Rays to put up between 2-4 runs, the top of the order is still dangerous and they should get through to Nolasco.
Although the twins did great against the Mariners, they look to be back to their usual lack of production. They’ll get 1-3 runs at most.
Take the under.
