The Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles meet Friday in MLB action at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

The Tampa Bay Rays look for a win after winning seven of their last 11 games. The Rays have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The Tampa Bay Rays have won six of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Tommy Pham leads the Rays with 91 hits and 38 RBI while Avisail Garcia and Austin Meadows have combined for 164 hits and 84 RBI. Yonny Chirinos gets the ball, and he is 7-4 with a 3.15 ERA and 81 strikeouts this season. Chirinos is 3-2 with a 3.38 ERA and 21 strikeouts in his career against the Orioles.

The Baltimore Orioles look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Orioles have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The Baltimore Orioles have won their last five games when scoring four or more runs. Trey Mancini leads the Orioles with 95 hits and 40 RBI while Jonathan Villar and Hanser Alberto have combined for 172 hits and 62 RBI. Dylan Bundy gets the ball, and he is 4-10 with a 4.65 ERA and 96 strikeouts this season. Bundy is 4-5 with a 5.49 ERA and 63 strikeouts in his career against the Rays.

The Rays are 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win, 3-7 in their last 10 road games and 0-4 in their last 4 games following an off day. The Orioles are 27-67 in their last 94 vs. American League East, 16-41 in their last 57 games following an off day and 7-21 in Bundy's last 28 home starts. The Rays are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Baltimore and 9-3 in the last 12 meetings. The under is 10-3-1 in Bundy's last 14 starts overall. The under is 20-9 in Rays last 29 road games.

Chirinos has been too consistent for the Rays to continue to lose when he takes the mound, as he's allowed three or less earned runs in his last six starts and is giving up a .213 batting average on the year. Bundy has allowed seven homers in his last 32 innings, and he has a 4.99 ERA and .275 allowed batting average through 48.2 innings this season. I continue to fade the Orioles and this is probably a good spot to do so again. There's only three teams in baseball that have burned more money this season than the O's. Give me the Rays and the reasonable price.

Pick:
Tampa Bay Rays -147
