Tampa Bay Rays vs Oakland Athletics  6/14/2023 Game Analysis, Picks and Previews

The third game of their four-game series between the Tampa Bay Rays and Oakland A’s will take place on Wednesday night in Oakland. These two teams are at opposite ends of the spectrum this season, with the Rays leading baseball with the best overall record and the rebuilding A’s with the worst record in MLB. On Wednesday night, right-handed Rays pitcher Tyler Glasnow (1-0, 2.87) will take against right-handed A’s pitcher Luis Medina (1-5, 7.53). The first pitch will be thrown at 9:40 Eastern Time.

The Tampa Bay Rays had the best start to a season in the team’s history, and they haven’t stopped since. They have the best record in the league, are the best at home, and are in a commanding lead in the AL East as they start their four-game series against the Oakland A’s. However, a four-run fifth inning helped the A’s overcome the Rays 4-3 on Monday night. The Rays had won eight of their previous nine games before the series.

The Rays collected 124 doubles and sent 113 baseballs into the stands. Tampa Bay has 581 strikeouts, 233 walks, and 581 runs batted in while slugging.472. With 5.7 runs scored per game, the Tampa Bay Rays are second in the league. They had 377 RBIs and 610 hits, with a batting average of 0.263. They have an OBP of 0.338 and 394 runs scored.

Right-hander Tyler Glasnow will start the Rays’ third game of the series. After missing the first two months of the season owing to an IL stint, Glasnow fully recovered. After three starts, Glasnow had a 1-0 record and a 2.87 ERA. He posted an 11.5 K/9 rate and a WHIP of 1.09 in his first three outings. Glasnow underwent Tommy John surgery the year prior and missed the full season before returning in the postseason.

The Oakland A’s have spent the whole season in last place because most of their seasoned big league players were moved away over the previous two seasons. The club is transitioning as they are ready to transfer to a state-of-the-art stadium in Las Vegas, perhaps leaving the lavish Oakland Coliseum. In spite of everything, the A’s have been on a tear since beating the A’s 4-3 on Monday night. Six games in a row are now victories for them.

The Oakland A’s will use youngster Luis Medina in the third game of the series. Medina is 0-2 in seven appearances, five of which were starts. He has an 8.3 K/9 rate, a 1.56 WHIP, and an ERA of 7.53. He has pitched 34.2 innings and surrendered 37 hits, including an incredible 10 home runs. Medina is 0-2 at home in three appearances, two of which were starts. In his home park, he had a 5.71 ERA, 7.3 K/9 rate, and 1.15 WHIP. In his last start, Medina pitched five innings and the Athletics defeated the Brewers 5-2 while he allowed three hits and two runs.

With an average SLG% of.358 and 3.66 runs scored per game, the Athletics are 29th in the league in scoring. They totaled 231 walks, 93 doubles, and 249 runs during the season. Oakland has driven in 241 runs this season and hit 65 home runs. They are fourth in the league with 503 base hits and 624 strikeouts combined.
