Will update with trends once they're released.
Ryan Yarbrough has allowed five runs and 11 hits in his last 8.1 innings while John Means has allowed six runs and 16 hits in his last 17.1 innings. Certainly not the best pitching matchup in the world, but the Orioles have been fade material pretty much all season long and that doesn't change here with them losing 10 of their last 12 games. The Rays have piled up the victories over the last week and they've been nearly unbeatable when the offense shows up even a little bit.
I'll lay the juice here and back the Rays in another victory over the O's.
