It?s always tough facing your former team, and even tougher as a borderline starter. Mariners pitcher Erasamo Ramirez will take on the challenge Friday as he squares off against the Rays. Rays starter Austin Pruitt has shown well in his last three starts against prime competition in the Astros, Red Sox, and Indians. Yet, side with the Mariners to end Pruitt?s run.

Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin is coming off an effective win against the Cubs but has issues lasting beyond six innings. Grab Houston to continue to pound the Diamondbacks bullpen.
It?s rare to see an East Coast team have a shorter distance to travel than a home-based West Coast team.
