The Rays will look to sweep the Marlins on the road for the first time in the 11 year history of these two teams. Matt Garza has given the Rays’ rotation a lift, but almost exclusively at home. The Rays are just 1-5 in Garza's six road starts, and he has failed to make it through six innings in each of his last three on the road. Garza has been touched up to the tune of a 6.19 ERA on the road this season. While Mark Hendrickson has been hot and cold, his presence on the mound on home turf has been impressive as the Marlins have posted wins in six of his eight starts. Tampa Bay remains an improved team, but with that said, they have only swept a team once in the last three years on the road with none coming this year, and they haven't swept a team with a winning record on the road period over the last three. We will take the Marlins as a valued home dog here.
