Game 13: Rays (7-6) @ Orioles (5-7), 7:05

Mitchell Layton

Orioles hitters try to stop sucking against Chris Archer and the Rays. Remains to be seen whether they are successful in this endeavor.

There are no must-win games in April. Anyone who asserts otherwise is someone you must strongly suspect of being a sensationalist blowhard. This is not about games that must be won. This is about games that it would be a lot more fun if the Orioles won. Here is a divisional competitor and the Orioles don't want to lose too much ground, even this early.

With most of the rotation looking the way it has, and with the offense looking the way they have, there hasn't been much worth being excited about so far. They can turn all that around with one nice winning streak, which would imply things clicking into place. They never got that winning streak last year and it's hard to imagine them having one this year either. But maybe Chris Davis hitting a home run yesterday is a sign that better times are on the way. He has a homer against Rays starter Chris Archer in his career, too.
