I'm playing on TAMPA. (10*) The Orioles temporarily cooled off the Rays yesterday but I fully expect Tampa to bounce right back this afternoon. The Rays got second basemen Lowe back yesterday, a welcome addition. He reached base his first three times and scored two runs. Lowe noted: "I felt great. The only thing I'm trying to do out there is help the team win." This afternoon, Kluber gets the call; he's been excellent in b2b starts, both of them quality. In those two starts, he allowed just two combined runs in 12 innings, striking out 12 while walking one. He's allowed three or fewer earned runs in 10 of his last 11 starts, two or less in nine of those. He's got a 3.07 ERA at home, the Rays have won six of his eight starts here. Note that his ERA is considerably better during the day than during the evening. To his credit, Lyles has been pitching well recently. That said, he's still got an ugly 5.52 ERA on the road, opposing hitters batting .278 in those games. Opposing batters are hitting .285 against him during the day, too. As a team, the Rays are 77-46 in day games the past few seasons; the O's are 43-70. Look for the Rays to respond to yesterday's loss, closing out the first half with an important victory and improving to 46-18 the past 64 times that they were favored, at home, in the -125 to -175 range.
