Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay Rays defeated Toronto Blue Jays in their opening series and yet they failed to get past Atlanta in their last four-game series. They lost the last two games after surrendering a total of nine runs. In their last game, Tampa Bay was restricted to just four runs after allowing seven to Atlanta. Starting pitcher Ryan Yarbrough threw six innings and suffered the loss with three walks and two earned. Yarbrough had six strikeouts for Tampa. The Bay Rays are keen on a victory here so they are turning towards Blake Snell to take the mound as their starter. The southpaw took out 147 opponent hitters last season with a 6-8 record. Snell has been successful against Toronto this season.

Baltimore defeated the Boston Red Sox in their opening series and that was good enough for a comeback. The Orioles are certainly going to settle for a better record this season as they have some good improvement on the plate. Unfortunately, Baltimore struggled to get past the New York Yankees in their last game and they were forced to settle with a final score of 8-6. The opening game against the Yankees never went well either as they lost with a 9-3 score. At last, the Orioles made it hard for the Yankees in their last game and they are decent enough as a competitor. Alex Cobb will be sent to the mound as their starting pitcher in this game.
