The Orioles have had success against Archer especially in Baltimore where they have scored 11 runs in 11 innings over his last two starts dating back to last season. Wei-Yin Chen has faced the Rays four times this season with Baltimore getting the victory in three of the four games. Both teams have been cold at the plate but we prefer the home side here who are 39-26 at home this season.
