Despite the approaching storm, officials expect to get the Angels, Rays game in tonight at The Trop in St. Pete. Cash your ticket on the Rays when they host the Halos.
Even though the Angels own the best road record in baseball by a wide margin, the Rays are too tough at home, winning 41 of the last 51 home games.
James Shields has great numbers on the season as the Rays have won nine of his last 11 starts and he has allowed more than three earned runs in just two of those outings. Shields is 7-1 at home this season with a 2.21 ERA and the Rays have lost just one home game out of 13 home starts for Shields this season.
Ervin Santana has very solid numbers for the Angels but he has allowed four or more runs in five of his last nine starts. The Angels have actually lost three of his last five starts and the Rays have won five of the past six meetings at Tropicana Field.
The Los Angeles bullpen has shown considerable vulnerability in the last week as well. Look for the Rays to make a statement with a big win Tuesday night.
