3. Not the same Archer. Rays starter Chris Archer's career, on the other hand, appears to be going in the opposite direction. The two-time All-Star and once-dominant right-hander is coming off two straight seasons with an ERA over 4.00 (he had a 3.26 ERA over his previous three seasons) and has struggled to a 6.59 ERA in 2018. Archer is coming off his first quality start of the season after allowing at least four runs in each of his first four outings. Is he due for a second straight solid day? Not necessarily, especially against an Orioles team he's had difficulty containing. The Orioles are without several key pieces, but Archer has a 4.81 career ERA in 17 games (16 starts) against them. The past two seasons have been especially bad for Archer head to head with Baltimore, as he had a 4.62 ERA in four starts in 2016 and a 5.91 ERA in four starts last season.
