Avisail Garcia helped lead the Rays offense as he went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored. Joey Wendle ended the game 1-for-4 with a solo homer.

Tellez powers Jays
Rowdy Tellez hit two solo home runs Wednesday to lead Toronto to a 3-2 victory at home versus Baltimore. Tellez finished the contest 2-for-4 with the two solo homers.

MLB Betting Trends
The Rays are 5-0 in their last five Friday games. Tampa Bay is 5-0 in the last five Glasnow road starts.
The Blue Jays are 5-0 in their last five series openers. Toronto is 7-3 in its last 10 games overall.
Glasnow has been lights out with a high strikeout rate since returning from an arm injury, just how he was before the ailment. He's built stamina with each start and should be able to pitch into the fifth or sixth inning today. Tampa Bay's bullpen should do the rest. The Rays have taken it to another gear lately and I don't expect them to take this game lightly.
