The Tampa Bay Rays and reeling and need to right the ship immediately.

After taking control of the Wild Card lead and seemingly in a position to go after the division lead, the Rays have now lost 4 in a row, sinking back now into a tie for the second Wild Card spot, a game back of the Yankees for the top spot, but still are three and half games back of the Red Sox in the division.

The loss yesterday afternoon was more of the same as Jake Odorizzi struggled to pitch deep, the bullpen couldn’t hold the late lead, and the Rays couldn’t deliver the big hit when needed.

The Rays will now welcome in the Baltimore Orioles for a three game set as they hope to snap out of their funk.
