After winning their third consecutive series, the Tampa Bay Rays now look to ride this surge of momentum into a four-game series against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
Jake Odorizzi (3-2, 3.16 ERA, 4.59 FIP) gets the start for Tampa Bay. He is coming off a seven hit and four run start against Cleveland — both season-highs — in the 7–4 win.
He will be opposed by J.C. Ramirez (3-3, 3.97 ERA, 3.86 FIP), who has gone seven innings in three of his last five starts. Ramirez has done so while pitching efficiently; he has yet to throw 100 pitches in a start this year.
Evan Longoria will get a DH day today, while Steven Souza Jr. will get a day off, and Michael Martinez will make his first start with his new ball-club.
