The Tampa Bay Rays in the Toronto Blue Jays will meet on Wednesday from Tampa. All odds for all games can be found by visiting Top Bet sportsbook.
The Rays have been battling all season and they are looking to make a postseason run late like they did last season. James Shields pitched 8 strong innings to earn his 10th win of the season yesterday. Tonight the Rays will send Alex Cobb to the mound who is looking to end his three-game losing streak. Cobb is pitching to a 4.60 ERA in 76 innings of work.
The Blue Jays are in last place, but have to be the best last-place team in baseball. They came up short on Tuesday as JA Happ struggled on the mound for his first loss in the American League. Tonight Toronto will start Carlos Villanueva who is coming off his only loss of the season in his last outing. Villanueva has allowed just 55 hits in 67 innings of work.
The Rays are 2-4 in their last six games as a home favorite, 3-8 in their last 10 games against a team with a losing record, and Toronto is 2-7 in their last nine games overall, 2-6 in their last eight road games, and 5-1 in Villanueva’s last six starts. Toronto is 19-41 in the last 60 meetings of these two.
