Tampa vs Baltimore Probable Pitchers

The 36-year-old Kluber – a two-time Cy Young Award winner — is enjoying his best season since 2018. That’s when the big right-hander went 20-7 with a 2.89 ERA for the Guardians, while logging his fifth straight 200-plus-inning campaign. The Rays are 10-8 in his starts this season, nine of which have been of the quality vintage.

He’s hurled six innings in each of his previous three outings, while sporting a 3-0 record and 3.00 ERA over that stretch. Kluber allowed eight hits, four earned runs and one walk while striking out three last Sunday in an eventual 7-5 victory over these Orioles.

Meantime, Voth — who the O’s picked up off waivers after he was released by the National last month — has been a pleasant surprise for an equally surprising Baltimore squad. The O’s have gone 4-1 in his 2022 starts, with his longest outing being a five inning turn on July 10th against the Angels. He allowed four hits, two earned runs and no walks while striking out six in what turned out to be a 9-5 win.


The 30-year-old made a relief appearance against these same Rays last Saturday, tossing 2.1 scoreless innings and allowing only one hit and one walk while striking out a pair in a 6-4 O’s win.

The Rays enter Charm City after dropping two of three on the road to the Royals. Yandy Diaz was the hitting star for Tampa Bay in the three-game set. He capped a four-run fourth inning with his bases-loaded double in a 7-3 win on Friday and blasted a solo shot in the fourth — then hit another double — in Sunday’s 4-2 defeat.

Randy Arozarena has been manager Kevin Cash’s best overall hitter, launching 12 homers to go along with 44 RBI and a .252 batting average.

Meantime, the Orioles lost two of three to the pace-setting Yankees over the weekend. Baltimore dropped a heartbreaking 7-6 decision on Friday, won 6-3 on Saturday, then got shut out 6-0 on Sunday. Cedric Mullins had a nice weekend against New York, going 5-for-11 at the plate and stole a base.

Five Baltimore players have hit double-digit homers, with Anthony Santander leading the way with 16. The outfielder also has a team-best 49 runs driven in to go along with a .241 batting average.

The Orioles currently have +25000 odds to win the Fall Classic, while the Rays are at +3200 in the World Series odds.

Rays vs Orioles Prediction

The Orioles have defied expectations so far this season, but with a somewhat rejuvenated Kluber on the bump for the Rays, I like the road team in this spot.

Baltimore has nice offensive balance, but I see Tampa getting to Voth and doing just enough to earn a win.

Pick: Rays ML (-145)
