He's 6-2 in 14 career starts against Baltimore with a 2.60 ERA. Chris Tillman (14-3, 3.70 ERA) is 2-5 with a 4.77 ERA in 10 appearance against the Rays and this year, is 1-2 this season while giving up five home runs in 17 innings. Tampa Bay 3B Evan Longoria has dominated Tillman, going 9-for-21 with three home runs. Baltimore did take two of three from Colorado at home, but before that, had struggled through a four-game losing streak. Baltimore normally struggles against lefties, hitting just .247 compared to .269 against right-handers. The Price will be right tonight for the Rays.
