The Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles face off on Sunday in an American League East showdown at Oriole Park. On Saturday, both teams had good starts but it was the Rays who were able to come away with a 3-1 victory. 

The Rays are a playoff team and coming into this game they have won four games in a row. Even though they have had success winning, this is an offense that has struggled to score. In three of the last four games the Rays scored three runs or less but in the other game the offense was good putting up ten runs. Brandon Lowe has been the best offensive player for the Rays this year hitting 13 home runs and driving in 33 RBI’s.

On the other side of this matchup is the Orioles who have played better than most expected but they just aren’t talented enough at this point to come away with success. The Orioles are led by Anthony Santader who has hit 11 home runs and driven in 32 RBI’s. In this game the Orioles offense needs to find a way to get going.

The Rays are 17-4 in their last 21 games on grass. The Rays are 16-5 in their last 21 games played on the road. The under is 8-2-1 the Orioles last 11 games played on Sunday. The Orioles are 172-272 in their last 399 games overall. Baltimore is 55-113 in their last 168 home games. 

John Means will get the start for the Orioles and coming into this game he sits with a 1-3 record and an ERA of 5.62. Means hasn't kept the Orioles in many games and they need him to step up in this start.

Means has struggled this season and he hasn’t gotten a whole lot of run support this year. Look for the Rays to run up the score, the Orioles will have no answer with the offense and that will lead to the Rays winning this game.
