21

Tampa Bay at Oakland

Friday 08/21 10:05 PM Eastern

1 unit on Oakland -115 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.87)  RESULT: LOSS

The Tampa Bay Rays have been all about pitching this season, and last night got a gem from Chris Archer who dealt a complete game shutout, allowing one hit and fanning 11. That may be very difficult to duplicate behind Drew Smyly, who had sat out since early May before getting hammered on his return last time out where he allowed 5 runs on seven hits, and completing just four innings. Oakland like Tampa, has had a history of developing top-of-the rotation pitchers, and next in line is Chris Bassitt. Bassitt has a 2.60 ERA on the season, which has been 1.91 at home over five starts and a pair of relief appearances. The Rays are a woeful 4-17 in their last 21 when facing a team that produced 5 runs or more in their last contest, while the A's look to extend their five game home winning streak vs. losing teams. Play on Oakland.
