Orioles return from All-Star Break to face the Rays: 7/12/19 Lineups
The Baltimore Orioles went into the All-Star Break with a 6-1 loss against a good Jays team, however the O’s had won three straight (two against the Jays, one against the Rays) prior to that loss.
The birds had put up scores of 8-1, 4-1 and 9-6 in consecutive nights. The Rays won their last two games before the break, while the Yankees lost two during a four-game series in that same sequence. That let Tampa Bay pull within 6.5 games of New York, while sitting in second place in the American League East.
The Rays are no joke, and the Birds will have their work cut out for them in Baltimore starting tonight. However, Tampa Bay has gone 17-19 in their last 36 games, thanks to injuries and some pitching woes along the way.
The Orioles’ Friday night starter Dylan Bundy, who is coming off a solid start in his July 5 win over Toronto, where he gave up one run on three hits in 6 2/3 innings, will have the first test against the up and down Rays.
If Bundy, who has a 4-5 record with a 5.49 ERA in his career against the Rays, can be as good as his last outing, he should be able to put the Orioles in great position to start the post All-Star Break off on the right foot.
