Why Tampa Bay Rays have to get better after a 7-8 start

The Rays are 4-5 after Sunday’s 7-6 loss to the Pirates.

The Rays have a 4.25 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP.

They’re outscoring their opponents by 11 runs per game and have scored just six runs in the second half.

Their run differential is the lowest of the AL Central, and they have the second-lowest average margin of victory in baseball.

So, what’s the answer?

The answer is a change in lineup.

It doesn’t mean the Rays are going to suddenly make up ground against the Pirates and Yankees.

But, if they get back to winning ways, the Rays could become a more consistent team.

They’ll need to be, if their win streak is to continue.

They have two weeks to figure it out.
