Game 139 Preview: All Eyes on Chris Archer

The right-handed Matt Moore. That won’t be enough for Chris Archer on Saturday as he’s filling the shoes of Rays ace David Price.

With a mid-90’s fastball, a devastating slider, and a promising changeup, Archer has a chance to make Rays fans forget Price at least for a moment. He has struck out 14 while walking just 2 in his 2 previous major league starts and he hopes to get more of the same tonight. Let’s see what he can do.
