4-unit Play #925 Tampa Bay Rays over Cincinnati Reds (1:10pm EST) David Price and the Tampa Bay Rays shut down the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night 2-1. They're back at it on Saturday afternoon, and it doesn't get much easier for the Reds. Alex Cobb takes the ball for the Rays and he's one of the most underrated pitchers in baseball. The 26-year old right-hander was 11-3 with a 2.76 ERA and 1.15 WHIP last season in 22 starts. It was a breakthrough year for Cobb and this season he looks just as sharp thus far against two pretty good lineups (Texas and Toronto). He'll face another tough opponent in the Reds today, but I think the Rays will be able to give him plenty of run support. That's because reliever Alfredo Simon will make his second start of the season today. Simon took Mat Latos' spot in the rotation and actually looked pretty good against the Mets. However, that was the Mets and this is the Rays. Simon has been a reliever in the past for a reason and I don't see him getting past five innings in this one. There are no easy outs on this Tampa team as they grind out every at bat from top to bottom. The Reds are also still without Aroldis Chapman, an injury that could play a big role if this one is tight late. Look for another result similar to yesterday, with the Rays on top.
