Oakland Athletics V Tampa Bay Rays MLB Live Score

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

In what could be seen as a playoff preview game the Oakland Athletics are playing host to the Tampa Bay Rays. The problem for the Athletics is their bats have not been really well this season as the team is ranked 21st in hits with only 1108 batters reaching the bases off of a hit. This is compared to the Rays who have managed to rank 12th with 1161 batters reaching the bases on the season. The pitching for Oakland has been what is keeping them in line because the team ERA is 3.66 on the year. The pitching for the Rays has been good, but not as good as Oakland as the team has only managed to post an ERA of 3.84.

David Price is the pitcher who the Rays are planning on sending out to the mound in this pivotal game and he has went 8-5 on the year with a 3.28 ERA. Jarrod Parker is the pitcher of choice for the A's and he has went 10-6 on the season with a 3.56 ERA.

OAK are 8-3 in Parkers last 11 home starts.
Over is 15-5-2 in the last 22 meetings.
TB are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.

Prediction: Oakland Win

Rays have struggled on the road recently going just 2-7 but they have ace Price on the mound. Look for Parker to match Price pitch for pitch and if goes to bullpens it favors Oakland. Great price on an A's team that is great at home and as an underdog to boot. Final Score Prediction, Oakland Athletics win 2-1.
