3* No Doubt Rout on Baltimore Orioles +
Tampa Bay vs. Baltimore,
04/17/2013 19:05 EDT,
Score: 6 - 2
Money Line: +105 Baltimore
Tampa Bay has been horrible on the road with a 1-5 record and a .160 batting average. They are scoring just 1.7 runs per game in road games. The Rays are really struggling right now having lost 4 consecutive games and 7 of their last 8 after losing to Baltimore last night. Matt Moore will take the mound for Tampa and while his ERA may be impressive in his two starts, he is not a pitcher that Tampa can rely on for longevity in a game. Moore averages just 5.7 innings per start which means an already exhausted Tampa bullpen will have another long night ahead of them. The Ray’s pen has a 5.28 ERA in 30.7 innings pitched. They have given up 5 home runs and have only 23 strikeouts on the season. The Orioles have now won 4 of their last 6 games and they have been playing well at home with a .302 batting average and scoring 5.7 runs per game. The bullpen has a 2.25 ERA in 36 innings pitched and they have 34 strikeouts with only 5 walks. Chris Tillman is getting the start for Baltimore today. With Tillman on the mound to start the game the Orioles have won two of their last three games against Tampa Bay. Considering how bad the Rays are playing right now this should be another Baltimore victory.
