Divisional bragging rights will be on the line on Friday when the Baltimore Orioles and the Tampa Bay Rays meet at Tropicana Field.

The Orioles will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Ubaldo Jimenez in this game. Jimenez has a 2-2 record and a 6.25 ERA this season.

Jimenez’s opponent in this one will be Chris Archer. The Rays right hander has a 3.75 ERA to go along with a 5-4 record this season.

Jimenez notched his second victory of the season last time out against St. Louis, allowing two solo homers among four hits over seven innings. The 33-year-old Dominican made three relief appearances before his last start, yielding six runs over 7 2/3 frames. Morrison is 5-for-9 with a homer versus Jimenez, who escaped without a decision against the Rays on April 24 despite giving up three runs over 3 1/3 innings.

Archer recorded the win last time out as Tampa Bay rallied after he permitted two runs and six hits over six innings while fanning eight to give him 85 strikeouts in his last nine outings. The 28-year-old North Carolina native has registered seven quality starts in 10 turns since allowing five runs over 6 2/3 frames in a loss to Baltimore on April 24. Jonathan Schoop and Chris Davis both have homered three times against Archer, who is 3-7 with a 4.69 ERA versus the Orioles.

Oddsmakers currently have the Rays listed as 183-moneyline favorites versus the Orioles, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The Tampa Bay Rays look to continue their climb in the American League East standings when they begin a three-game set against the visiting Baltimore Orioles on Friday. The Rays have won four of their last five contests and can move four games over .500 for the first time this season with a victory in the series opener.

Logan Morrison (21 home runs, 51 RBIs) and Corey Dickerson (.326 batting average, AL-best 94 hits, 16 homers) have led the way for Tampa Bay all season, but Mallex Smith has added a spark and brings a 12-game hitting streak into the series. The Orioles continue to struggle, as they’ve allowed at least five runs in 19 consecutive games after losing 6-3 to Cleveland at home on Thursday and are tied for last in the AL East. Manny Machado has provided a bright spot for Baltimore of late, going 9-for-22 with six extra-base hits – three homers – and eight RBIs over his last six contests. The Orioles make their first trip of the year to Tampa Bay after taking two of three from the Rays at home in April and going 13-6 in the 2016 season series.

Tampa Bay won its last outing, a 8-3 result against the Reds on June 21. Bettors who backed the Rays at -109 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (11) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

The Orioles were a 6-3 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Indians. That made winners of bettors who got Cleveland at -130 on the moneyline, while the total score (9) was good news for UNDER bettors.
