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

Right hander Alex Cobb will take the mound for the Rays to start this game. Cobb is 11-10 this season with a 3.63 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Ubaldo Jimenez who starts for the Orioles. Right hander Jimenez is 6-10 with a 6.57 ERA so far this season.

Cobb gave up nine runs total in his last six starts, but managed just a 2-3 record during that stretch without completing more than six innings in any outing. The 29-year-old Boston native held Baltimore to one run and four hits over seven innings for a 5-1 victory on July 26 to improve to 5-2 with a 2.54 ERA in 11 career contests against the Orioles. Cobb, who has held Machado to 4-for-23 (two homers), owns a 4.74 ERA on the road as opposed to 2.46 at home.

Jimenez won for the first time in seven outings last time out when he limited the New York Yankees to one run on three hits over five innings with 10 strikeouts. It was the second double-figure strikeout performance for the 33-year-old Dominican Republic native this season and he owns a 3.27 ERA in three appearances this month. Evan Longoria is 7-for-22 with a pair of homers overall versus Jimenez, who is 0-2 with a 10.80 ERA in three games against the Rays in 2017.

Oddsmakers opened the Orioles as -113-moneyline favorites versus the Rays, while the game’s total opened at 10.

The Baltimore Orioles expected to be preparing for a playoff run in late September, but instead they are battling for third place in the American League East when the Tampa Bay Rays pay a visit for the second of a four-game set Friday night. The Orioles earned a 3-1 victory in the series opener Thursday and are 5 ½ games out in the race for the AL’s second wild card – one-half game behind the Rays – with just over a week to go.

Manny Machado belted a two-run homer for Baltimore in the victory while teammate Trey Mancini extended his career-best hitting streak to 11 games with a single Thursday as the Orioles won for just the third time in 15 contests. Ubaldo Jimenez will try to keep it going for Baltimore when he takes the mound Friday against fellow right-hander Alex Cobb, who pursues his career-high 12th victory. The Rays have gone just 4-9 since last reaching the .500 mark and scored two or fewer runs in six of their last seven losses after managing five hits Thursday. Infielder Daniel Robertson returned from the minors for the series opener to go 2-for-2 with a walk at shortstop for Tampa Bay and is expected to get plenty of playing time down the stretch.

The Orioles were a 3-1 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Rays. That made winners of bettors who got Baltimore at 110 on the moneyline, while the total score (4) was good news for UNDER bettors.
