Houston Astros vs Tampa Bay Rays Predictions 10/17/2020

The Tampa Bay Rays were so close to closing out this season with a dominant 3-0 lead but are struggling to stop the Astros. It’s like the Rays don’t want to be in the World Series and it will be very embarrassing if they lose after the 3-0 lead. Manuel Margot did his best in the last game with 2 hits and 3 RBIs including a solo homer and a 2 run homer in 2 consecutive innings. Willy Adames added 1 hit and 1 RBI while Blake Snell picked up the loss after allowing 2 earned runs in 4 innings. Randy Arozarena has 20 hits and 6 homers for the team while Manuel Margot leads with 11 RBIs. The squad has a 3.62 team ERA while making 53 total runs with a 2.10 team BAA. The Rays led the American League with a 40-20 record and are 1st in the AL East Division. Charlie Morton will get the starting role in the final game. He recorded 2-2 with a 4.74 ERA and 42 strikeouts in the regular season.

Houston Astros vs Tampa Bay Rays. MLB’s pick for the game is the Houston Astros. The Rays had it all in this series and they chose to blow it all away with a sudden death game. One loss was ok but 3 straight losses against the Astros who didn’t do too well in the regular season is absurd. Houston has all the momentum marching into game 7 and with Tampa Bay doing terribly on the offensive side, scoring 4 or lower runs in 3 games. Houston deserves to be in the World Series after digging in deep to a score of 6-3.
