Free MLB Pick Miami Marlins vs. Tampa Bay Rays
After a 14-run outing Saturday night, the Rays hold off the Marlins and take their third of the season against their Floridian neighbors. Both teams put on quite the offensive show, but the Rays and their four homers ended up with the win. The Rays will look to stave off the Marlins one last time Sunday afternoon in order to take home the season sweep, and in hopes of keeping their wildcard hopes alive.
Rays Look for Season Sweep of Marlins
Saturday night was an impressive offense night for the Rays as they drive in seven of their eight runs on four homers. The rays extend their streak of six or more runs scored to six games and improve to 5-1 in that span. They also improve upon their dominance of the Marlins as they take their third of the season and fourth straight. Tampa Bay looks as if they’re finding their groove just in time for October, but will their pitching be able to hold on that long?
Starting Sunday’s game for the Rays will be Yonny Chirinos, who seemed to be have been a late scratch for Saturday nights game. Chirinos will be looking to pick up his ninth win of the season after a disappointing last start. He started off the year 6-1 and will be looking to return to that form against a tough Marlins team this afternoon.
Marlins Offense Only Hope to Upset Tampa Bay
The Marlins offense has been very strong as of late and continued to be so yesterday against the Rays. But even their nine hits and Castro’s homer couldn’t get the job done in Tampa. With only one shot left, they will look to steal a win from the Rays and avoid the 0-4 season sweep behind starting pitcher Caleb Smith.
