The Texas Rangers and Arizona Diamondbacks face off on Tuesday in an interleague showdown at Chase Field. These are two teams who have faced off twice so far this year and each team won a game. 

The Texas Rangers offense has been an issue all season and that has put a lot of pressure on a pitching staff that hasn’t been great. Coming into this game the Rangers have lost four of the last five games and in three of the four losses they scored three runs or less.Joey Gallo has been the best offensive player this season for the Rangers hitting ten home runs and driving in 25 RBI’s. In this game they need to get the offense going.

On the other side of this matchup is the Arizona Diamondbacks who have also had issues with their offense and they have lost each of their last two games 3-2. The Diamondbacks are one of the few teams this season who haven’t dealt with a whole lot of injuries.Kole Calhoun has been one of the few bright spots on the team hitting 15 home runs and driving in 36 RBI’s. In this game the Diamondbacks need the offense to be better.
