The Rays come into Thursday’s game against the Indians with a 57-39 record. While their pitching has been stellar as usual, they’ve also fielded a potent lineup that ranks fifth in the American League in runs scored.

Since May 13, Tampa Bay has gone 38-20 while averaging 5.43 runs per game. The Rays have also been much better offensively on the road, averaging 5.29 runs per game away from Tropicana Field versus 4.48 runs per game at home.

They’ll look to continue that trend in Cleveland on Thursday against Quantrill, who’s been struggling lately. Over his last five starts, the 26-year-old righty has been knocked around to the tune of a 6.38 ERA, a 1.54 WHIP, and an .897 opponent OPS. He’s also allowed at least three runs in four of those outings.

While Quantrill’s been bad in general lately, lefties have been absolutely killing him. In their last 50 plate appearances against him, southpaws have a .447 wOBA and a .378 ISO. That doesn’t bode well for Quantrill given that Tampa Bay’s projected lineup for tonight features seven lefties, plus a pair of dangerous righties in Randy Arozarena and Mike Zunino.

Accordingly, Quantrill figures to have a tough time with the Rays tonight. They should be able to score early and often against him, cashing this bet for us in the process.
