The Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles face off on Thursday in a doubleheader. Since this is a doubleheader this will only be seven innings and this is the preview for Game 2. These two squads have faced off five times so far this year with the Orioles winning three of the games.
The Rays have found success this season but coming into this game they have struggled a bit losing two of their last three games. In two of the last three games they have scored three runs or less and even in the win they only scored six runs.The Rays best player this season has been Brandon Lowe who has hit 13 home runs and driven in 31 RBi’s. In this game with it being only seven innings long they need to get out to a fast start.
On the other side of this matchup is the Orioles who are coming off a win but the last week their offense has been super inconsistent. In five of the Orioles last seven games they have scored only one or zero runs. On Wednesday against the Braves the Orioles scored five runs led by Renato Nunez who drove in two RBI’s.
On the mound for the Rays will be Blake Snell who comes into this game with a 4-1 record and an ERA of 3.23.
On the mound for the Orioles will be Dean Kremer who has found success this season as a rookie and he currently sits with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 1.64.
The Rays are 14-4 in their last 18 games on grass.The Rays are 25-10 in their last 35 games overall. The Orioles are 126-269 in their last 395 overall.The Orioles are 54-111 in their last 165 home games.
These are two pitchers who have been good this year and that is going to continue in this game. Look for both pitchers to lock down in this game and that will lead to this game staying under the total. This is a game that you shouldn't make a play on the side because there is no value either way.
