(MLB) Texas vs. Tampa Bay, 04/14/2021 7:10 PM, Score: 5 - 1
Money Line: -177.00 Tampa Bay (Home)
Result: Loss
I'm playing on TAMPA. Fleming will be happy to be recalled to get his well-deserved shot at this season's rotation. Remember, all he did was go 5-0 with a 2.78 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in seven outtings (5 starts) last season. Then, this spring, he posted a 0.00 ERA in 8 2/3 innings. In those four spring appearances, he had a dominant 0.46 WHIP, opposing hitters batting just .108. He only gave up three hits (0 HRs) while striking out eight against one walk. Arihara has a 5.00 ERA. Having gone five or less innings in both starts, note that he'll be supported by a Texas bullpen which currently has a combined 9.00 ERA and 1.85 WHIP on the road this season. Fleming, meanwhile, will be backed by a TB bullpen which has a 4.09 ERA and 1.36 WHIP at home. Texas 10-32 its last 42 road games with an O/U line of 8 or 8.5. Tampa 50-25 its last 75 at home, with an O/U line of 8 or 8.5. Rays respond.
