I like the Rays here on the road. They have a solid road record of 39-22 and will be playing in a NL ball park. That actually helps them as their pitcher Brandan McKay is also a great hitter. I think he can do enough on the mound and with the Bat to help his team win their 14th out of their last 17 games. Plus we see that Eric Lauer appears to be falling off as he nears his innings total from his rookie season. The Padres lefty has struggled in the second half and the Rays should continue that trend.
I love McKay and have been waiting for a spot to smash him. As crazy as this sounds he's bee -180 and as big as -230 so far in most his starts. One small advantage that the rays have going here is McKay can smash at the plate and he actually will be the teams DH from time to time because he's that talented of a hitter. Lauer is horrific batting so you get a little advantage knowing the rays have 9 quality batters to the padres 8. This is a game of inches so every little thing helps. But the padres should smash against lefties but they rarely do and I just htink McKay has too much talent so I'm going rays
