Oakland Athletics vs Tampa Bay Rays 4/14/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Oakland Athletics will go against the Tampa Bay Rays in MLB action in Tropicana Field, FL, on Thursday, April 14, 2022, at 1:10 PM (EDT).

 

The Oakland Athletics had a strong start to the season, going 3-3 despite spending the majority of the summer selling off crucial but pricey assets. Oakland dropped two of three games in Philadelphia before winning two of the first three games in Tampa Bay, including a 4-2 victory on Wednesday.

 

On Wednesday, Oakland’s bats were largely quiet, but they were effective in key situations. Catcher Sean Murphy hit a three-run home run in the third inning, and center fielder Cristian Pache doubled in a run in the seventh to put the Rays up 4-1.

 

This season, Oakland has the 15th best team batting average in baseball. The A’s will be pressured to find power sources elsewhere after selling away 3b Matt Chapman and 1b Matt Olson. Oakland, on the other hand, found home runs all throughout the lineup thus far, ranking fourth in the MLB in home runs per game.

 

On get-away day tomorrow, Cole Irvin will make his second start of the year. In his debut start, the left-hander allowed 7 hits and 4 runs over 5.1 innings against the Phillies’ potent offense.

 

In taking the defeat, he struck out four batters and walked one. Irvin made 32 starts in his debut season and finished 10-15 with a 4.24 ERA. He only struck out 123 batters this season, but he did surrender 23 home runs.

 

  • The total went OVER in 6 of Oakland’s last 9 matches.
  • The Oakland Athletics are 5-2 SU in their last 7 matches against Tampa Bay.
  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Oakland’s last 10 matches on the road against Tampa Bay.

Oakland Athletics vs Tampa Bay Rays Predictions 4/14/2022

 

The Rays may be attempting to avoid a sweep on Thursday afternoon, save for an extra-inning triumph in game 2 of this series. The Rays started the season with three consecutive wins but struggled at home against the gritty A’s.

 

Shane McClanahan (0-1) struggled to get out of the fifth inning, with his pitch count reaching 85 when he was pulled. He gave up two hits and three runs while striking out eight batters and walking three.

 

The Rays recorded eight hits on the day but went 1-for-11 with runners on base. In the fourth inning, Jin-Lee Choi hit his second home run of the season, a single drive, and catcher

 

Josh Fleming only pitched once this season, lasting 3.1 innings and striking out five batters while allowing three hits. Fleming finished 10-8 in 26 games as a rookie, 11 of which he started.

 

In just 104.1 innings, he posted a 5.09 ERA and surrendered 11 home runs. Randy Arozarena, last year’s rookie of the year, is expected to break out of his early-season rut with the Rays. Arozarena has only one extra-base hit in four at-bats this season. 

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Tampa Bay’s last 6 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Tampa Bay’s last 11 matches against Oakland.
  • The Tampa Bay Rays are 9-3 SU in their last 12 matches at home.

Oakland Athletics vs Tampa Bay Rays. The MLB pick for this game is the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays have a decent chance to get their bats going against Cole Irvin, who throws softly. He has a penchant for the long ball, so the Rays’ right-handed power hitters, such as Franco and Arozerana, might have a huge day.

 

Fleming isn’t a Plus starter, but at the beginning of this game, he won’t be expected to pitch more than 2 or 3 innings. In this one, I expect the Rays’ batters to soar and the bullpen to maintain its domination. The Tampa Bay Rays will win to a predicted score of 5-4.
