The Tampa Bay Rays look to stay hot after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Rays have scored 14 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The Rays have split their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Evan Longoria leads Tampa Bay with 57 hits and 28 RBI while Logan Forsythe and Steven Souza Jr. have combined for 57 RBI. The Tampa Bay Rays have split their last six home games. Nathan Karns takes the hill, and he’s 3-3 with a 3.86 ERA and 60 strikeouts this season. This will be Karns’ second career game against the White Sox.
The White Sox are 4-12 in their last 16 vs. American League East and 6-1 in Sales last 7 starts. The Rays are 7-0 in their last 7 games vs. a left-handed starter and 4-1 in Karns' last 5 starts with 4 days of rest. The White Sox are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Tampa Bay.
The Rays have owned left handers as of late, and the White Sox haven't been great on the road. I like the home team and the plus money in this spot.
