Tampa Bay Rays vs Baltimore Orioles Prediction

I’ll probably lean toward the Orioles in this one. At least some of that is due to Bradley’s recent struggles. In two of his last three starts (both losses), Bradley combined for 14 earned runs on 15 hits and three walks in just 10.1 innings. The good news is that Bradley did manage 5.0 clean innings versus the Royals on May 26.

On Friday the Orioles got home runs from Anthony Santander, Ryan Mountcastle (two RBI) and Jordan Westburg (two hits; two RBI) as the vast majority of their offense. The pen was great as well on 3.1 innings, one hit, no earned, one walk and two Ks. I like Baltimore to keep it rolling into the weekend.
