Ryley's Daily Baseball Pick: April 14th
The Oakland Athletics are visiting Tampa Bay to take on the Rays in the final game of the series at 1:10 eastern. These two teams faced off last night, resulting in a Rays victory 4-2. With this being the last game of the series and following a night game, I expect some players to rest.
Cole Irvin will take the mound for the Athletics, having given up five runs in 12 innings against the Rays last season. Josh Fleming will take the mound for the Rays. Fleming has been very successful at home, with an ERA of 2.28, winning seven games in 14 outings. Fleming should provide the Rays with a solid 3-5 innings of work. Irvin faced a tough Phillies lineup last time out, giving up four runs through five innings. Irvin has the experience to bounce back and perform.
After a tightknit night game going into an early day game , considering the time difference for the west coast team Oakland. With the Rays price being too juicy I like my chances on the under. My Pick: Under 8 runs
