Fresh off suffering a perfect game loss to Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday, the Rays visit the Angels on Thursday night at 10:05 p.m. ET as both teams continue to fight towards the playoffs as August hits its midway point.
Rays Hope the ‘Price’ is Right Thursday Night in Anaheim
Tampa Bay arrived in Anaheim late last night after having the 23rd perfect game in Major League history thrown against them. The Rays will send ace David Price to the mound to try and keep the potent Angels lineup in check. Price has had success in his career against the Angels, posting a 3-2 record with a 3.48 ERA in 44 innings pitched. Price has 15 wins this season and is looking to remain in the AL Cy Young race with his start tonight in Anaheim.
Haren Working Towards Nine Wins with Angels
Dan Haren has struggled this season, posting an 8-9 record with a 4.68 ERA. Even though he has excellent numbers in his career against the Rays, Haren has struggled too much recently to place a bet in favor of the Angels tonight. Haren is 7-3 with a 2.60 ERA in 83 innings against the Rays but his current season’s numbers do not bode well for him tonight.
Online betting books, specifically the one at Sportsbook.com, has an excellent moneyline for David Price and the Rays on Thursday night at the Angels. The money line for Price is -120. We will take that bet any day, especially when the sure-handed Price is on the mound for Tampa Bay.
