A winning streak will be on the line for the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday when they battle the Oakland Athletics at Tropicana Field.

The Athletics will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Sonny Gray in this game. Gray has a 2-2 record and a 4.57 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Rays will be Erasmo Ramirez. The right hander has a 4.09 ERA to go along with a 3-1 record this season.

Gray posted his fourth quality start in seven 2017 outings last time out on Sunday when he yielded three runs and four hits over seven innings in a no-decision against Washington. The 27-year-old Vanderbilt product has completed at least six innings in five of his seven starts and gave up just two homers since surrendering three in his season debut. Tim Beckham is 2-for-2 with a homer versus Gray, who is 2-2 with a 4.22 ERA in seven games against the Rays.

Ramirez struggled in his last two starts while giving up eight runs on 13 hits over seven total innings to post a loss and a no-decision. The 27-year-old from Nicaragua, who surrendered a homer in each of the last two games, is 0-7 with a 5.04 ERA in 13 games (eight starts) versus Oakland in his career. Yonder Alonso is 4-for-6 against Ramirez, who is 3-0 with a 2.86 ERA in seven appearances (three starts) at home in 2017.

Oddsmakers currently have the Rays listed as 123-moneyline favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

Mallex Smith will get plenty of playing time in center field for the Tampa Bay Rays after the injury to two-time Gold Glove winner Kevin Kiermaier, and showed how capable he can be in his first game back from the minors. Smith hopes to follow up a big performance as the Rays look to extend a three-game winning streak when they host the Oakland Athletics in a rare single-admission doubleheader Saturday.

Smith went 2-for-3 with a walk, a two-run homer, three runs scored and three stolen bases Friday in place of Kiermaier, who is out 6-8 weeks with a hip fracture, as Tampa Bay went deep five times en route to a 13-4 victory. Oakland lost its ninth game in the last 13 and dropped to 8-21 on the road overall after permitting double-digit runs for the eighth time this season. Infielder Ryon Healy is 1-for-10 in the last three outings after belting four homers and knocking in nine over a three-game span for the Athletics. It will be only the second scheduled doubleheader in two decades in the majors (the Athletics hosted the Los Angeles Angels in the last in 2011) and the second in Tropicana Field history.

The Rays were a 13-4 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Athletics. That made winners of bettors who got Tampa Bay at -130 on the moneyline, while the total score (17) was good news for OVER bettors.

Oakland was a 13-4 loser in its last match on the road against the Rays. They lost as +120 underdogs, while the total score of 17 made winners of OVER bettors.
