The Tampa Bay Rays and the Baltimore Orioles will meet on the field at Camden Yards on Sunday in a battle of division rivals.

The Rays will trot Alex Cobb out to the mound in this one. Right hander Cobb has a 6-5 record and a 3.73 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Orioles will be Kevin Gausman. The right hander has a 6.07 ERA to go along with a 4-7 record this season.

Cobb took a no-hitter into the seventh inning at Pittsburgh on Tuesday but settled for a no-decision after allowing two hits over eight scoreless innings. The 29-year-old Boston native is 2-0 over his last four starts, yielding five earned runs over 27 2/3 innings with 18 strikeouts and six walks in that span. Manny Machado (2-for-17, one homer) has struggled against Cobb, who is 4-1 with a 2.00 ERA in nine career games versus Baltimore.

Gausman snapped a three-start losing streak by limiting Toronto to four hits in 5 1/3 scoreless frames on Tuesday with four strikeouts. The 26-year-old LSU product permitted 15 runs on 23 hits over 14 2/3 innings during the losing streak and finished with a 6.41 ERA in June. Trevor Plouffe is 4-for-9 with two doubles and a homer versus Gausman, who is 3-4 with a 4.80 ERA in 11 appearances (nine starts) against the Rays.

Oddsmakers currently have the Orioles listed as 118-moneyline favorites versus the Rays, while the game’s total is sitting at 10½.

Logan Morrison was re-signed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract in early February by the Tampa Bay Rays and it may end up being one of the best bargains in the offseason. The 29-year-old first baseman will attempt to add to his career-high home run total of 24 on Sunday as the visiting Rays go for a three-game sweep of the American League East-rival Baltimore Orioles.

Morrison passed his previous high of 23 blasts with the Florida Marlins in 2011 on Saturday when he went deep twice in Tampa Bay’s 10-3 rout of the Orioles, and has hit safely in 11 of his last 12 games to raise his average from .240 to .256. Surging Alex Cobb tries to complete the sweep for the Rays and Baltimore hopes to salvage the series finale as it sends fellow right-hander Kevin Gausman to the mound. Jonathan Schoop provided most of the offense for the Orioles on Saturday with a two-run homer and has recorded multiple hits in seven of his last 11 contests. Baltimore has surrendered 16 runs in the first two games of the series after winning four of its previous five contests to climb back to .500.

Last time out for Baltimore, they were a 10-3 loser as they battled the Rays on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Rays at 113 were rewarded, while the 13 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

The Rays were a 10-3 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Orioles. That made winners of bettors who got Tampa Bay at 113 on the moneyline, while the total score (13) was good news for OVER bettors.
