After sweeping the Baltimore Orioles during Opening Weekend, the Rays surprisingly slipped up against the Oakland Athletics, dropping three of four games at home this week. Thursday’s finale featured the Rays on the wrong side of a bona fide Little League home run. Despite the loss, the Rays remain a must-watch team if for no other reason than Wander Franco. Even though he is 0-for-9 over his last two games, the 21-year-old star has a robust .379/.387/.552 slash line.
The White Sox lost their most recent game on Thursday, but they have begun this season with series victories over the Tigers and Mariners. Chicago carries a stacked lineup, but Luis Robert has really stood out in the early going. He homered on Tuesday and Wednesday and entered Thursday with four stolen bases, tied for the most in the Majors.
