The Line: Tampa Bay Rays / Baltimore Orioles -- Over/Under:

TV: MAS2, SUN

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

The Tampa Bay Rays look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Rays have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Tampa Bay Rays have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Tommy Pham leads the Rays with 120 hits and 54 RBI while Austin Meadows and Avisail Garcia have combined for 225 hits and 124 RBI. The Tampa Bay Rays didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.

The Baltimore Orioles look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Orioles have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Baltimore Orioles have won three straight games when scoring four or more runs. Jonathan Villar leads the Orioles with 140 hits and 59 RBI while Trey Mancini and Hanser Alberto have combined for 258 hits and 128 RBI. Dylan Bundy gets the ball, and he is 10-5 with a 5.03 ERA and 129 strikeouts this season. Bundy is 4-6 with a 6.39 ERA and 64 strikeouts in his career against the Rays.

The Rays are 11-1 in their last 12 road games, 23-4 in their last 27 Sunday games and 19-7 in their last 26 overall. The Orioles are 21-49 in their last 70 home games, 7-20 in Bundys last 27 home starts and 7-20 in Bundys last 27 starts with 4 days of rest. The over is 6-1 in Bundys last 7 home starts vs. Rays. The under is 4-1-1 in Bundys last 6 starts overall. The over is 9-4 in Rays last 13 road games.

Bundy has allowed 20 hits and 11 runs in his last 24 innings, and he has 5.16 ERA and .281 allowed batting average at home. The Tampa Bay Rays may have lost yesterday, but they've absolutely owned the Orioles as of late like most teams this season. Bundy is one of those Baltimore pitchers who gets rocked more times than not. It's Rays or pass for me, as backing these Orioles doesn't make much sense.
