Game 29 Lineups and Outlook

Last night saw the Rays claw back from an early 2-0 deficit, which is a fitting parallel for how this team has fought back to .500 with yesterday’s victory. A two-run no-doubter after several mere mortals had fallen short to that same part of the field tied it up from Steven Souza. A tremendous Curt Casali walk to load the bases with two outs in the ninth to set the stage for the incomparable Logan Forsythe. Of course he came through with a two-RBI single over the infield and then finished the game with a tremendous pivot to turn two. Jake Odorizzi gave a ho-hum solid six before turning the ball over to our best two relievers in Erasmo Ramirez and Alex Colome. Tonight, we go for the sweep:

I wouldn’t pay much attention to the edge for this game, because I wouldn’t expect Matt Andriese to go longer than two time through the lineup. If he can even give us that modest goal then I think the team will be well-positioned. Tropeano is an interesting foe who the tool really seems to have a crush on. Part of it is the park, but Nicky Trop seems like a guy who hasn’t made a name for himself yet, but nonetheless could be a tough foe. I’d expect the whiners to have a field day if that’s the case. Tonight’s game will be won or lost by how our bullpen fares. Here’s a look at the expectations of each possible matchup. Note that the players below the bar have been hit with a pinch hit penalty. Also, the color schemes are such that green favors the Rays with red favoring the opposition Angels:
