Shane’s Free Pick

The Rays are going to have no issue running up the score here. Drew Rasmussen hasn’t given up a run yet this season, and he’s going to lockdown the Blue Jays offense here. Berrios has been awful all season, and the Rays are going to score eight or nien runs here. Back the Rays on the run line.
