After being swept by the Chicago White Sox, the Tampa Bay Rays will look to rebound as their AL East co-leaders the Baltimore Orioles come to Florida for a three-game series. The Orioles enter the series on a five-game losing streak. Both sides are sporting records of 29-22.

David Price (6-3, 2.71 ERA) will take the mound for the Rays, and he'll be facing Wei-Yin Chen (4-1, 3.31 ERA) for the Orioles. Price is yet to face the Orioles this season, and they lead the American League with an 8-4 record against lefties. Chen, a rookie, will be making his first-ever start against Tampa Bay. He has a 5.14 ERA on the road this year.

The game is set to begin at 7:10 p.m., and it will be televised on Sun Sports.
