Angels vs Rays prediction

Jose Soriano just got rocked by the Rays a few days ago, and he's allowed 9 hits and 7 runs in his last 7 innings. Aaron Civale had a solid start in 5 innings against the Angels a few days ago, and he's allowed 4 earned runs in 17 innings this season overall. The Rays' offense is due for a breakout performance, and seeing a pitcher they just had success against is what the doctor ordered. Give me the Rays, and I'll lay the RL to shave down the price.
