On Monday night in Oakland, California will see an MLB match-up between Tampa Bay Rays and Oakland Athletics take place at RingCentral Coliseum. Tampa Bay enters this contest with an overall 48-20 record and 17-50 mark for Oakland.
Recently, the Rays defeated the Rangers 7-3 thanks to Shane McClanahan’s stellar pitching performance which allowed only three earned runs over seven innings and allowed only 12 hits; their offense also delivered, going deep once out of 12 hits total and surpassing their expected over/under line of 8. As such, the total score reached 10, surpassing expectations.
Over their 2023 campaign, Tampa Bay’s Rays have averaged 5.75 runs per game while their pitching staff has been one of the league’s finest – third lowest ERA and third lowest WHIP respectively. Players like Yandy Diaz and Isaac Paredes have put up impressive statistics throughout this year’s run-scoring machine.
On the contrary, Oakland has struggled this season, ranking 27th in scoring while going 7-24 at home this year. Their ERA stands at 6.39 and their WHIP at 1.60, both standing as the worst in baseball. Furthermore, Esteury Ruiz leads their offense with a batting average of .263 and 15 doubles while Brent Rooker hits .262, with 13 homers and 37 RBI.
If the A’s hope to have any chance at success this season, they must improve their play at home. Oakland has a chance at doing just that during their match against the Tampa Bay Rays with James Kaprielian starting; his record this season stands at 1-6 with an ERA of 7.21, a WHIP of 176 and 39 strikeouts. The Rays will counter with Zach Eflin, who has gone 8-1 with a 2.97 ERA in eight starts so far this season. It is certain to be an intense contest between these two pitchers; ultimately it may come down to who can outwit each other when it comes time for pitching battles.
