The Rays are 4-0 in their last 4 road games, 21-9 in their last 30 vs. American League West and 5-2 in Mortons last 7 starts. The Mariners are 8-20 in their last 28 during game 2 of a series, 3-14 in their last 17 Saturday games and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The Rays are 1-10 in the last 11 meetings in Seattle and 7-22 in the last 29 meetings. The under is 3-1-1 in Mariners last 5 home games. The over is 8-2 in Rays last 10 overall.
Morton has allowed 39 hits and 17 runs in his last 43 innings, and he's allowing a 2.78 ERA and .214 batting average on the road. Milone has allowed 31 hits and 20 runs in his last 28 innings, and he has a 4.60 ERA and .261 allowed batting average at home. The Tampa Bay Rays are as hot as they've been all season and have one of their best pitchers on the mound. Milone has been tagged pretty good these last two months, and he can't expect much run support from a slumping Mariners squad. The Rays should be able to steal another one.
