Athletics Visit Rays in Florida for Opener of Three-Game AL Set

Athletics playing like a team possessed right now

Oakland enters tonight's opener of a three-game set with Tampa Bay sporting a 28-16 record and a four-game lead in the AL West. They are 9-1 in their last 10 played and have won three straight games. One the road, the Athletics are 16-6, which is the best road record in the Majors. Oakland is receiving excellent hitting in timely situations and stellar pitching throughout their games. Drew Pomeranz and puts his 1.14 ERA on the line tonight.

Rays would like to fix early season problems

Tampa Bay is just 19-26 this season, good for a five-game deficit in the AL East. The division does not seem as strong this year as in previous seasons, which is why Tampa Bay still has a shot. But, time is running out on the Rays' decision with ace David Price. Price could be moved prior to the deadline in order for the Rays to receive a nice return for the lefty. Tampa can begin to fix their problems with a win in game one this evening.

The Major League Baseball season is just starting to heat up, but the excitement has been here since day one. Tonight, we feature the Athletics and the Rays in a battle of low-payroll teams trying to make deep playoff runs. Our bet goes for the A's on the road with the -126 money line at Bovada.lv as Oakland grabs the opener of this three-game set.
