The Tampa Bay Rays make a quick 2 game trip into Baltimore to take on the Orioles starting on Tuesday evening. The Rays are coming from Boston where they dropped 2 out of 3 in the series, but they had won 3 in a row before that. So they are finally showing signs of getting rid of that World Series hangover as they have played much better as of late. Andy Sonnanstine (1-3, 5.79) will take the hill in the opener for the Rays and will be opposed by Mark Hendrickson (1-4, 5.13). And in the finale, Jeff Niemann (2-3, 5.65) will toe the rubber for the Rays against Brad Bergesen (1-0, 4.98).
