Oakland Athletics vs Tampa Bay Rays. The MLB pick for this game is the Tampa Bay Rays. Although Oakland showed grit, they still lack skill compared to just about every other team in the majors.


The A’s will fight, struggle, and claw, but they aren’t a team you can count on to win games, especially away from home against quality opposition.


Before this series, Tampa Bay swept the Nationals on the road and the Tigers at home. In his first start of the year against the Tigers, Springs pitched six frames without surrendering a hit.


The A’s Triple-A lineup is not very strong, but he should be able to handle it. Give Tampa Bay the advantage as the Rays continue their impressive start to the season. The Tampa Bay Rays will win to a predicted score of 5-4.
