Tampa Bay Rays
After losing a season-high seven games from June 15-22, the Rays went on a four-game winning streak before losing to the Los Angeles Angels 6-4 on Sunday.
It’d be hard to argue that any team is more complete than Tampa Bay right now. The Rays are 24th in MLB, batting .229, but 6th in scoring at 4.9 runs per game. The Rays pitching staff is 6th with a 3.42 ERA and 3rd with a 1.12 WHIP.

Kyle Schwarber hit his 14th home run of June to set the Nationals record for the most home runs in a calendar month since the team was founded as the Montreal Expos in 1969. Schwarber broke a tie with former National Bryce Harper (May 2015) and retired Expo Vladimir Guerrero (September 2000) to take the record for himself.
Schwarber has been a great offseason addition for the Nationals as he has a team-best 22 homers and 50 RBI’s.
The Nationals are set to start Jon Lester on Wednesday. In 11 starts this season, Ross is 1-3 with a 4.99 ERA and 1.53 WHIP. Lester is coming off the worst start of his season, allowing 7 ER in just in just 2.1 innings.
