The Texas Rangers will play the New York Yankees in Game 1 of their series at Yankee Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Texas Rangers are 10-14 this season and have won four games in a row. Texas is coming off of a series win against Philadelphia, where they won both games. The Texas pitching staff has a 4.23 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and a .235 opponent batting average this season. The Rangers offense has scored 104 runs with a .224 batting average and a .293 on base percentage. Adolis Garcia is batting .200 with four home runs and 18 RBI’s for the Rangers this season. The projected starter for Texas is Dane Dunning, who is 1-1 with a 3.81 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP over 26 innings pitched this season.
The New York Yankees are 18-7 this season and have won 11 of their last 12 games. New York is coming off of a series win against Toronto, where they won two out of the three games. The New York pitching staff has a 2.60 ERA, a 1.15 WHIP, and a .220 opponent batting average. The Yankees offense has scored 119 runs with a .248 batting average and a .323 on base percentage this year. Anthony Rizzo is batting .242 with nine home runs and 21 RBI’s for the Yankees this season. The projected starter for New York is Gerrit Cole, who is 2-0 with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP over 24 innings pitched this season.
Texas is 4-0 in their last 4 games and 21-54 in their last 75 road games. The under is 8-3 in Texas’ last 11 games. New York is 7-0 in their last 7 home games and 27-11 in their last 38 games. The over is 4-1 in New York’s last 5 home games. Texas is 0-6 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.
The Yankees have been on an absolute roll over their last 12 games, but are coming off of a loss. Texas has also been playing well and comes into this game on a four game winning streak. Gerrit Cole has not allowed a run in his last two starts and has looked very good. I like the Yankees to win the game by a couple of runs.
