The Texas Rangers need a win to snap a six-game losing streak. The Rangers have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Rangers have lost six of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Isiah Kiner-Falefa leads the Rangers with 41 hits and six RBI while Nick Solak and Todd Frazier have combined for 66 hits and 23 RBI. Lance Lynn gets the ball, and he is 4-2 with a 2.67 ERA and 63 strikeouts this season. Lynn is 3-2 with a 3.92 ERA and 36 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.

The Angels are 5-2 in their last 7 Tuesday games, 17-37 in their last 54 road games and 4-10 in their last 14 games following an off day. The Rangers are 6-13 in their last 19 during game 1 of a series, 16-35 in their last 51 Tuesday games and 17-36 in their last 53 overall. The over is 5-0 in Angels last 5 road games. The Angels are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Texas and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings.

Usually you want to avoid a team riding a six-game losing streak and back the team that's won five straight, but getting behind Julio Teheran isn't an option. Teheran has allowed 20 runs and 26 hits in his last 23.2 innings, and he's allowing a .292 batting average and .363 on base percentage. It's clear Lynn in the better pitcher here. I'll gladly take the Rangers and the slight plus money at home.
