The Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles face off on Saturday in an American League East showdown at Oriole Park. The Rays have been able to win all three games so far during this season.
The Tampa Bay Rays have found a lot of success this season and they have won three games in a row. On Friday, the Rays offense didn’t find a whole lot of success scoring only two runs, but they did come away with a victory. Brandon Lowe has been the best offensive player this season hitting 13 home runs and driving in 33 RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the Orioles who haven’t been great this season but they have still probably played better than what most expected this season. In two of these three series against the Rays in this series, the pitching hasn’t been terrible, but they need to get the offense going. On Friday, both the Orioles and Rays had five hits, but the Orioles could only manage one run. Anthony Santander has been the best offensive player for the Orioles hitting 11 home runs and driving in 32 RBI’s.
Charlie Morton will get the start for the Rays and coming into this game he sits with a 1-2 record and an ERA of 5.14.
Jorge Lopez will get the start for the Orioles and coming into this game he sits with a 2-0 record and an ERA of 5.23.
The Rays are 15-4 in their last 19 road games. The Rays are 16-5 in their last 21 games on grass. The Rays are 27-10 in their last 37 games overall. The Orioles are 127-271 in their last 398 games overall. The Orioles are 116-237 in their last 353 games on grass. The Orioles are 55-112 in their last 167 home games.
These are two pitchers who have given up plenty of runs this season and that is going to continue in this game. Look for plenty of scoring between these two teams and this game is going to go well over the posted total.
