The Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels face off in an American League West showdown at Angels Stadium. In the first game of this series it was the Angels who found the success coming away with a 6-2 victory.
The Texas Rangers offense has been a big issue this season and over the last four games they have scored only five runs total. In three of the games the Rangers only scored a run, and in the last game they only scored two goals. Willie Calhoun was the only bright spot for the Rangers in the last game putting up two runs but that wasn’t enough. In this game the Rangers need to find a way to get Lance Lynn some run support.
On the other side of this matchup is the Los Angeles Angels who have really struggled this season but they have won two games in a row. On Friday night the star of the show for the Angels was Albert Pujols who hit home runs number 661 and 662. Mike Trout has also played at an MVP type level, it’s just a shame that hasn’t turned into a lot of team success this season.
Lance Lynn will get the start for the Rangers and coming into this game he sits with a 6-2 record and an ERA of 2.40.
Andrew Heaney will get the start for the Angels and coming into this game he sits with a 4-3 record and an ERA of 4.02.
Texas is 8-23 in their last 31 games overall. The Rangers are 16-37 in their last 53 road games. The over is 21-6-1 in the Angels last 28 home games. The over is 7-3-3 in the Angels last 13 games overall. The under is 5-2-1 in the last eight meetings between the Rangers and Angels.
Lynn is having a big year and no reason to believe it’s going to be different in this game. Look for the Angels to struggle to score, and the Rangers will score enough runs against Heaney to come away with a victory. In terms of the total the under is the play.
