Tampa Bay ML
The Toronto Blue Jays host the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday in game one of a three-game set. Toronto is coming off a 7-4 loss to Baltimore, while Tampa Bay beat Houston in their last game before the break, 5-0.
We cashed tickets on the final day before the break by fading the struggling Blue Jays, and by backing the streaking Rays, taking them on the run line. We’ll go right back to that well on this day, as we expect the teams to continue heading in opposite directions.
David Price gets the ball for the Rays in this one. He’s dominated the Blue Jays in his career. In 16 starts against Toronto, Price is 12-2 with a 2.28 ERA and 1.06 WHIP.
He’s also been solid since coming back from the DL, posting a 1.08 ERA and 0.76 WHIP in three starts since returning.
The Rays are 14-2 in their last 16 games.
The Jays counter with Esmil Rogers. Rogers has one start versus the Rays this season, and it didn't go well for him. Rogers allowed three home runs in that outing, a game the Blue Jays lost 4-1.
The Rays are 4-1 in their last five road games.
Take Tampa Bay.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
