The Texas Rangers will visit the Chicago White Sox in an AL matchup on Saturday night. It will be the second of a three-game set at Guaranteed Rate Field.

The Rangers dropped the first game 9-7 on Friday. Kyle Cody earned the loss after giving up 3 runs in 3 innings of relief work. From the dish they had 10 hits and were 3-11 with runner in scoring position. Adolis Garcia homered twice in the game, bringing his season total to 5.

Starting for the Rangers on Saturday will be righty Kyle Gibson. He is 2-0 with a 2.53 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 18 strikeouts this season. Against this White Sox lineup in his career, he has allowed a .244 average with 6 home runs in 131 at bats.

The White Sox took the last game for their 4th win in 5 games. The pitching staff combined to give up 10 hits but struck out 14. From the plate they had 16 hits and were 6-14 with runners in scoring position. Yoan Moncada homered in the 8th for his 2nd of the season. To start the season, Chicago has a .256 team batting average and .738 OPS. Yermin Mercedes leads the team with .429 average, 1.161 OPS and 4 home runs.

Getting the start for Chicago on Saturday will be lefty Dallas Keuchel. To start the season, he is 1-0 with a 5.68 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 10 strikeouts. He has only faced four current Rangers in his career, allowing a .248 average with 10 strikeouts in 27 at bats.

Texas is 6-4 in their last ten games, 6-5 on the road this season, and the under is 10-9-1 in their games.

Chicago is 6-4 in their last ten games, 4-3 at home this season, and the under is 10-9 in their games.

Texas will look to bounce back in this one. They have gotten off to a decent start this season and have the edge on the mound. Kyle Gibson has been on a good run, only giving up 1 run in his last 21 innings. The Rangers bullpen does not give me much confidence, but the Rangers have been good against lefties and should have enough of a lead to weather the storm late. Give me Texas to win.
