The Tampa Bay Rays ride a two game winning streak into this game and they will look to continue their winning ways and stay atop the AL East this Sunday, as they take on a divisional opponent the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.
Tampa Bays Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays bats showed up in their last game putting up an 10 spot and they actually needed a score like that to get the job done, as their pitching was a little shaky giving up 6 runs to the Orioles.
The Rays are not known for their batting lineup, just based on their recent history, but that is certainly starting to change as they have been able to put up 549 total runs which ranks them as the 4th best offense in the league.
Tampa still has an outstanding bullpen, but their starting 5 has really struggled to make an impact only putting up 28 quality starts this season, so in order to be in the position they are right now they have had to keep scoring at a high rate.
Michael Wacha is on the mound for this one and he enters with a 5.26 ERA and a 2-3 record and he also is coming off the back of a brutal outing against the Seattle Mariners allowing 6 earned runs during that contest.
Baltimore has had a nice little run recently, but they have now lost their last 3 games, as their deficiencies in the pitching staff is becoming more and more apparent and that really be the number one thing this needs to fix going into this offseason.
This offense has been really a lot better then most people thought, as Cedric Mullins and Trey Mancini have really come on this year and they also have some nice depth power which means this is now the 17th ranked team in terms of team average at .238.
Jorge Lopez is the projected starter here and although his numbers are pretty bad, he has shown some upside and that was evident last time out, as he essentially shut down the Yankees in the Bronx through about 6 innings.

Free Tampa Bays Rays vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
This is a high total, but given the way these two teams are swinging the bat and the pitching matchup being what it is, I can see this one getting over the 10.5. The weather is looking like it will be favorable for scoring and I do not see either of these pitchers going deep in this game, so I think we will see both of these teams reaching deep into their bullpen which is obviously great for the over.
