LA Angels vs. Tampa Bay Rays

Rays have really started the trend of relievers starting games in fact the Rays are 6-1 in the last 7 games that Ryan Yarbrough has started for Tampa. Rays one of the best teams in baseball come in off two straight home losses to the Oakland A's.
I expect Tampa to be on high alert in this game as both teams are desperate to win. Rays are still 18-16 at home this season and 6-4 in their last 10 overall. Ryan Yarbrough is 5-4 with a 5.31 ERA and has 30 strike outs and 8 walks and his major flaw is letting in runs as his strike out to walk are very good.
Last start for Ryan he went 7 innings only allowing 1 run and 4 hits striking out 7 batters and walking none but go back to 2 starts ago and he got blow up giving up 7 runs on 10 hits as he was hit around by the Minnesota Twins.
LA Angels come in winners of 2 straight games over their cross town rival the LA Dodgers so no time to rest with the 2nd place Tampa on the docket next. Tyler Skags has been mediocre all year going 4-6 with a 4.97 ERA striking out 59 while walking 22.

Skaggs and the Angels bullpen have been a mess all season long. Long trip for the Angels here going west to east coast tons of miles on that plain. I expect the hits to come early and often and look for Tampa to get up big and roll thru the Angels here 12-4.
