The Tampa Bay Rays need some help this week from the Baltimore Orioles, preferably a sweep of the New York Yankees.

The Rays currently sit 2.5 games behind the Yankees in the AL East. They are also 1.5 games behind the Baltimore Orioles as well as the Oakland A’s for the wild card.

Obviously, the first order of business for the Rays is to win their series against the Rangers.

Provided they are able to win their series, the next best possible outcome would be the Orioles defeating the Yankees.

After the Rays three-game series against the Rangers, they face both the Orioles and Yankees on the road next week. This gives them the opportunity to close the gap and possibly overtake the teams in the standings.

Here is a look at four possible scenarios the Rays could be facing following this weekend’s games.
