Tampa Bay Rays vs Baltimore Orioles Prediction

I’ll stay with the Orioles. Bradish has been on a pretty good run lately. Over his last three starts Bradish is 1-0 with three earned runs combined over 16.0 innings on eight hits and seven walks. As for Bradley, he gave up five earned in 7.0 innings versus the Red Sox on May 20 but came back with 5.0 clean frames in his last start.

On Friday the Orioles had 11 team hits but really only one big inning. The bullpen really came through however, and Baltimore rode that momentum to the victory. The O’s should have a good shot at keeping it going on Saturday.
