Tampa Bay at Baltimore

3 units on Tampa Bay -115 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Two teams that are perennially playing to avoid last place are playing for first in the AL East. The Rays have won six of their last seven games while Baltimore has split their last eight. Andy Sonnanstine hasn't lost in three starts. Baltimore goes with first-year pitcher Matt Albers who comes out of the pen where he has pitched well. But with the starting responsibility, we are going to fade him. Tampa is getting 5.1 runs per game vs. RHP while Baltimore is averaging just 4.2. We like the Rays who have more momentum, a better offense, and a more tested pitcher.
