Game Preview

As they open a 4-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday July 19, the Baltimore Orioles will formally occupy the top spot in the American League. 
For the majority of the opening 3 months of the campaign, the Tampa Bay Rays remained the topic of conversation in MLB. They got off to the quickest beginning in the club’s history and set a record for scoring rates. Recent events have significantly calmed down, and they currently enter the series very much in danger of squandering the team’s lead in the standings. Prior to Wednesday’s set finale against the Texas Rangers, Tampa had dropped 3 consecutive matches and had a record of 3-7 over its previous 10 matches. The Rays’ formidable lineup has been muted in Texas, as seen by the 3-2 and 5-3 losses they suffered in the opening 2 matches. The Rays fell to the Rangers 5-1 on Wednesday, in the set’s concluding contest.
On Thursday, Tyler Glasnow will be making his tenth start of the year. Since entering the rotation at the end of May, Glasnow is currently 3-3 with a 3.78 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, 71 strikeouts in 47.2 innings. He missed the start of this campaign due to an injury.

After trailing the Rays for the entirety of the year, the Baltimore Orioles are suddenly in an excellent spot to overtake them for the top spot in the AL East. Baltimore enters this set sporting a 3-2 record against the Rays this year after defeating Tampa Bay 2 out of 3 times at home and splitting the other 2 contests away from home. After dropping the initial 3 matches of that set by tallies of 6-4 and 10-3, the Baltimore Orioles are undoubtedly relieved to have finished playing the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Kyle Gibson will make his twenty-first start of the year on the mound. Gibson has thrown 115 innings and has a record of 9-6 along with a 4.77 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. On Saturday when facing the Marlins, he gave up 5 runs in 5.1 innings. During his 11-year Major League Baseball career, he has a 98-97 record and a 4.54 ERA.
