The fans at Tropicana Field will be treated to a game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Tampa Bay Rays when they take their seats on Sunday.

The Brewers will trot Jimmy Nelson out to the mound in this one. Right hander Nelson has a 9-5 record and a 3.43 ERA this season.

Nelson’s opponent in this one will be Chris Archer. The Rays right hander has a 3.95 ERA to go along with a 8-6 record this season.

Nelson has posted six quality starts in his last nine outings, including Tuesday when he allowed two runs on six hits over six innings with seven strikeouts in a win against St. Louis. The 28-year-old Oregonian owns a 4.66 ERA on the road as opposed to 2.43 at home but boasts 149 strikeouts versus only 32 walks in 133 2/3 innings overall. Wilson Ramos is 2-for-3 with a homer versus Nelson, who faces the Rays for the first time but is 6-6 with a 4.15 ERA in 14 interleague starts.

Archer has completed at least six innings in 14 straight outings with 10 quality starts in that stretch, although he was able to win in Houston Tuesday despite permitting four runs in six frames. The 28-year-old North Carolina native did not walk a batter in the outing and boasts 182 strikeouts over 148 innings overall. Shaw is 3-for-12 with a homer versus Archer, who faces Milwaukee for the first time and is 6-7 with a 2.97 ERA in 16 interleague outings.

Oddsmakers currently have the Rays listed as 137-moneyline favorites versus the Brewers, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.

The Tampa Bay Rays are wondering where their offense has gone as they try to avoid a three-game sweep at the hands of the visiting Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday afternoon, following a second straight shutout. The Rays returned home after scoring 26 times to win four of five games but have left 18 men on base and come up empty in 12 at-bats with runners in scoring position this series.

“We’ll be fine. It’s been a quiet couple of days,” Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash told reporters after his team dropped 5 ½ games behind first-place Boston in the American League East and one game out of the second wild-card spot. Chris Archer takes the ball for the Rays in the finale against fellow right-hander Jimmy Nelson, who has lost just once since June 23. The Brewers, who trail the first-place Chicago Cubs by one-half game in the National League Central, may not have one of their top offensive threats in the lineup Sunday after slugger Travis Shaw suffered a neck contusion when he was hit by a throw on a steal attempt. Milwaukee won four of its last five contests, allowing eight total runs, and shortstop Orlando Arcia has stepped up offensively with seven hits in 14 at-bats in the past four.

The Rays were a 3-0 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Brewers. That made winners of bettors who got Milwaukee at 132 on the moneyline, while the total score (3) was good news for UNDER bettors.

Milwaukee won its last outing, a 3-0 result against the Rays on August 05. Bettors who backed the Brewers at 132 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (3) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
