The Tampa Bay Rays look to build on their four-game winning streak. The Rays have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last six games. The Rays have won seven straight games when scoring more than three runs. Logan Forsythe leads Tampa Bay with 60 hits and 30 RBI while Evan Longoria and Steven Souza Jr. have combined for 58 RBI. The Tampa Bay Rays have won five of their last six home games. Alex Colome takes the hill, and he’s 3-2 with a 4.21 ERA and 33 strikeouts this season. This will be Colome’s first career game against the Nationals.

The Nationals are 25-52 in their last 77 games as a road underdog and 5-2 in Roarks last 7 starts. The Rays are 5-0 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 0-4 in Colomes last 4 starts. The Nationals are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Tampa Bay. 

The Rays have caught fire a bit at home, while the Nats remain one of the more inconsistent teams in baseball. When I pick Washington to win, it drops an egg. Well, here's to the Rays getting yet another home victory.
