I'm NOT PLAYING THE UNDER here but I will offer some advice on a Prop bet. 6+ K's for Kershaw tonight. Duffy is the only guy who has seen the Ace enough to know how to remotely hit it and he's struck out 6 times in 28 career ABs (team only has 50 ABs ever against him). The Rays also do not hit Lefties well. Not only do they have just a .211 Batting AVG against lefties over the last 30 days but they also K the most against LHP in that span. I'd lean to take the Under here but not alot of info on Wood for me so far. Will update post with comment if I come across something.50%

DRaysBay: Rays 3, Dodgers 7: Rays make Clayton Kershaw look like... well, Clayton Kershaw
Every Sunday I play men's league baseball (I promise there's a point to this). It's far from the best baseball you'll ever see, but it's competitive, it's organized, and most of all, it's fun. I enjoy it especially because I, as a 30-year-old, get to compete against guys who are younger, faster, and (at least in my head) more talented than myself.
The majority of our baseball careers flamed out after high school (like me), and the remaining majority after college. But what we all have in common is that none of us are quite ready to leave the diamond, or worse, play softball!
True Blue LA: Dodgers offense cruises past Rays
The small-ball strategy earned the Dodgers a 7-3 victory over the Rays on Tuesday. For a team that is accustomed to winning games via the long ball, this was a bit out of the norm.
Though most of the game ran at a rather slow pace, the seventh inning had enough action and drama to fill an entire game.
As previously mentioned, the Dodgers used the small-ball strategy, and this inning perfectly demonstrated that. They scored three runs in a two-out rally to increase their lead to six runs. Enrique Hernandez, Corey Seager and Joc Pederson hit three-straight base hits to drive in the three runs.
TBO Rays: Rays vs. Dodgers lineups for Tuesday in a quick Trop stop
The Rays open a brief, to put it mildly, two-game homestand tonight against the Dodgers, and they'll have the added challenge of facing three-time Cy Young award winner Clayton Kershaw, who will be making his first career start at the Trop.
The Rays wrapped a five-game, six-day roadtrip in New York on Sunday, then after having Monday off play two games against the Dodgers and leave after Wednesday's game for Cleveland, where they open a four-game series and then return home. It is only the third time in franchise history, and first since 1999, they have a two-game stand.

It's hard to call this a homestand.
After two in Miami and three in New York, the Rays travel back to the Trop for two against the Dodgers. After that, it's right back out for four games in Cleveland.
The last time the (Devil) Rays hosted the Dodgers, it was 2007, and here were the starting lineups:Untitled

Fansided: Tampa Bay Rays Series Preview: The Dodgers are in town
Cody Bellinger, Clayton Kershaw, and the Los Angeles Dodgers are in town for a pair of games against the Tampa Bay Rays who should be happy to be home after suffering a pair of tough road losses at the hands of the New York Yankees.
In a matchup that will include two of the best teams in baseball, runs will be at a premium. The Rays lead the league with a team ERA of 2.98 while the Dodgers are second with a 3.38 team ERA.
The Rays, 27-17, have split their last ten games while the Dodgers, 31-17, have won seven of their past ten games.
Think Blue: Dodgers Continue East Coast Road Trip with Quick Stop in Tampa Bay
The Dodgers started their eight game road trip off well, taking two of three games from the Reds in Cincinnati. Cody Bellinger and Hyun-Jin Ryu continued their dominance with their bat and their pitching, respectively. The team hit some homers, and the bullpen was still a little shaky. Pretty much par for the course of what this season has been so far.
While the division was close in the beginning of the season, the Dodgers are now enjoying a 5.5 game lead over the Arizona Diamondbacks, and a 7.5 game lead over the San Diego Padres.
