After the Tampa Bay Rays 2-0 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Friday night at Tropicana Field, the Rays brought their winning streak to three-consecutive games. Tampa will look to bring that number to four in the second of their three-game weekend series with Baltimore.
Jeremy Hellickson will start on the mound for the Rays, his first since battling dehydration in his last appearance against the Los Angeles Angels on July 29th.
In that game, Hellickson fought through nausea and even threw up in the dugout and had to get an IV after the game even though he pitched six scoreless innings and struck out five batters in the Rays 2-0 win.
Tampa Bay pitchers have struck out 10 or more batters in 10 of the team's last 14 games.
