The fans at Tropicana Field will be treated to a game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Tampa Bay Rays when they take their seats on Wednesday.

The Blue Jays will give the ball to starter Marcus Stroman in this one. Right hander Stroman is 11-6 this season with a 2.99 ERA.

Starting this game for the Rays will be Austin Pruitt. The right hander has a 5.37 ERA to go along with a 6-3 record this season.

Stroman boasts three straight quality starts and six in his last eight games overall after limiting Tampa Bay to two runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings last Wednesday. The 26-year-old Duke product has given up one home run total in his last 10 outings after surrendering three in back-to-back starts June 17 and 22. Corey Dickerson is 8-for-24 with two homers versus Stroman, who is 5-4 with a 4.04 ERA in 10 career starts against the Rays.

Pruitt registered a career-high seven innings last time out against Seattle, but allowed six runs on 11 hits and two walks in his second straight loss. The 27-year-old rookie had strung together three consecutive quality starts before his last game while permitting four runs and 16 hits over 18 1/3 innings combined in that span. Kevin Pillar homered against Pruitt, who is 1-0 with a 4.26 ERA in three relief outings versus Toronto.

Oddsmakers currently have the Blue Jays listed as 111-moneyline favorites versus the Rays, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

The Tampa Bay Rays have won back-to-back games for the first time since opening August with three in a row and look to continue their revival when the Toronto Blue Jays visit for the second of three contests Wednesday night. Kevin Kiermaier has given the Rays a boost since returning from a two-month stint on the disabled list while going 7-for-17 with a homer, three RBIs and three runs scored in four games.

Tampa Bay, which sits four games back in the race for the American League’s second wild card, has picked it up on offense with 15 runs in the last three games and Wilson Ramos has warmed up with 14 hits in his last seven contests. Right-hander Austin Pruitt tries to keep it going for the Rays and Toronto counters with ace Marcus Stroman, who is 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA in three starts against Tampa Bay in 2017. The Blue Jays are fading out of the AL wild card race with four straight losses to start their road trip after leaving the tying run at third base with one out in Tuesday’s 6-5 setback. Josh Donaldson continued his assault on Rays pitching with a solo homer in the series opener – his seventh blast and 11th RBI against Tampa Bay this year.

The Rays were a 6-5 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Blue Jays. That made winners of bettors who got Tampa Bay at -202 on the moneyline, while the total score (11) was good news for OVER bettors.

Toronto lost its last outing, a 6-5 result against the Rays on August 22. Bettors who backed the Rays at -202 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (11) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
