Shane’s Free Pick

The Rays are going to bounce back here. I don’t trust Hunter Brown and although he has a lower ERA, this is a game where I expect the Rays are going to find success. The Rays are going to score at least five runs, and that will be the difference as they get the job done. Back the Rays.
