Orioles vs Rays Predictions

On Tuesday night, the Baltimore Orioles will visit the Tampa Bay Rays in a battle of the top-two games in the AL East. Tampa Bay comes in with the best record in baseball, as they are the first team in the league to reach the 50-win mark this season. But they face an Orioles team here that is tied for the second-best record in the league, in what should be a fascinating contest from Florida.

Baltimore Orioles Predictions

The Baltimore Orioles enter Tuesday night off of a win on Sunday against the Chicago Cubs, salvaging the final game of a series where they lost the first two matchups to Chicago. Here, Baltimore will look to get back on track after that Cubs series by beating a Rays team that they have won two of their three meetings with already this season. But those two wins over the Rays came in Baltimore, and winning on the road against the Rays is a much tougher task.

If the Orioles are going to win on the road against the Rays on Tuesday, they will need a strong start from Kyle Bradish. Bradish comes into Tuesday night with a 2-3 record, but his 3.90 ERA is more than acceptable in a division that is so loaded from top to bottom. Problematic for Bradish coming into this game is the fact that he has been much worse on the road than he has been at home, as he has posted a 4.60 ERA on the road compared to his 3.14 ERA at Camden Yards.

Fortunately for the Orioles, they have one of the few offenses in baseball with the ability to hang with that of Tampa Bay. While the Rays rank second in baseball in runs scored this season, the Orioles rank ninth in that department. Baltimore will need to play like they have a top-10 offense in baseball if they want any chance of hanging with the Rays with one of Tampa’s best arms on the mound to start this matchup.

Tampa Bay Rays Predictions

The Tampa Bay Rays come into Tuesday night having lost two games in a row, having dropped the final two games of their three-game weekend series with the San Diego Padres. But the Rays are back at home for this matchup with their division rivals, where they are 31-7 on the season so far. Even more beneficial for the Rays is the fact that Tyler Glasnow is set to start this matchup on the mound for them.

Glasnow has only pitched four times so far this season, as the start to his 2023 season was delayed by injury. But the Rays have won three of his four appearances so far this season, with Glasnow picking up the win in each of his last two outings. He has yet to hold an opponent scoreless this season, but he has navigated trouble deftly so far, and may need to do so again as he faces a dangerous Orioles lineup here.

Fortunately for Glasnow, run support is not likely to be an issue in this or any of his other starts. So far this season, the Rays have averaged just over 5.5 runs per game, which is likely to be more than enough for Glasnow if the Rays can get there on Tuesday.
