Over on the rays, they just ended up against the Twins. Tampa dropped 9-4 and 6-4 in the first two games, and on Thursday Tampa won in a wild 18-in marathon 5-2.

Lynn had a nice string of eight consecutive quality starts that went earlier in the month and sent a 4-2 record over that span.

I like Lynn to get out firing again here and put together some solid innings. I'm going Rangers.
