On the other hand, he pitched well in most of his previous four starts at Oriole Park at Camden Yard in 2015 and is 6-3 with a 2.65 ERA in his last ten starts here.
Gonzalez posted a 3.39 ERA in thirteen career starts versus Tampa Bay, but the right-hander yielded 7 hits and 1 run, while striking out eleven over 13 1/3 innings in the last two of them this season.
Logan Forsythe is 3-for-6, with a walk against him, Evan Longoria is 7-for-28, with a homer and four walks, while Asdrubal Cabrera is 3-for-11, with a homer.
Desmond Jennings is 6-for-25, with 4 HR and seven walks, while James Loney is 4-for-23, with 4 RBI and two walks, but they are injured.
Gonzalez will face a team with obvious problems in offense, as the Rays were limited to two or fewer runs in four of their last five games and have .231 BA, with 9 runs and 1 HR over that span.
The Orioles recorded four or more runs in five of their last eight games at Oriole Park at Camden Yard, including 6 runs on 13 hits in their last game here against the Chicago White Sox yesterday (6-3).
Tampa Bay will give the ball to Nathan Karns (3-2 with a 3.71 ERA), who pitched well in his previous four starts in May, but the right-hander had big problems in his last start versus Baltimore, allowing 5 hits and 6 runs, with four walks over 5 2/3 innings in a 5-6 loss on April 7.
Karns went 0-1 with a 8.10 ERA in two career starts against the Orioles.
J.J. Hardy is 2-for-2, with a homer against Karns, Adam Jones is 3-for-7, with 2 RBI, Chris Davis is 2-for-5, with a homer and a walk, Travis Snider is 1-for-3, with 1 RBI and two walks.
I think that Baltimore will manage to win the opening game of this series against the Tampa Bay Rays.
