To say the Tampa Bay Rays have had a crazy start to the regular season would be an understatement. After going 2-11, they rattled off nine victories in their next 11 before losing one to Seattle and two to the San Francisco Giants. Tampa will tangle with the Giants once again at AT&T Park on Sunday.
- The UNDER is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
- The Rays are 0-4 in their last 4 interleague home games.
- The OVER is 5-2 in Peavy’s last 7 road starts.
Jake Peavy and Jake Odorizzi are expected to get the start for the Giants and Rays, respectively. Peavy (3-6, 5.83 ERA) has held two of his last three opponents without a run while winning both contests, but they’re his only triumphs in his past nine outings. Odorizzi has completed more than six innings just once in his last eight starts and is 3-1 with a 3.74 ERA over that span.
San Fran outfielder Gregor Blanco is on an absolute tear for his team right now. Blanco is 9-for-20 with four RBI during a five-game hitting streak.
