The Tampa Bay Rays look for a win after winning five of their last eight games. The Rays have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last seven games. The Rays have split their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Logan Forsythe leads Tampa Bay with 56 hits and 26 RBI while Evan Longoria and Steven Souza Jr. have combined for 54 RBI. The Tampa Bay Rays have lost seven of their last eight home games.
The White Sox are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and 3-8 in Danks' last 11 road starts. The Rays are 1-6 in their last 7 home games and 5-2 in their last 7 Friday games. The White Sox are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
I'm going with the White Sox simply because the Rays have been awful as of late on their home field. Also, we have no idea who is going to start for Tampa Bay.
