The Texas Rangers and Oakland Athletics face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Oakland Coliseum.
The Rangers offense finally found success again on Wednesday, but overall it’s been an offense that has had issues scoring. If the Rangers want to turn around this season, they are going to need to find more success scoring. The Rangers are averaging 4.0 runs per game which is 20th in the MLB.
The Oakland Athletics come into this game with a 19-27 record overall but they have won two games in a row against the Seattle Mariners. Paul Blackburn had a strong start, and they only needed four runs to win. The A’s are averaging 3.41 runs per game which is 28th in the MLB, so when they have found success this season, it’s usually been the pitching that has been good. Seth Brown has hit five home runs and driven in 22 RBIs.
On the mound for the A’s is Frankie Montas who sits with a 2-4 record and an ERA of 3.55. In his last appearance, he went 1.2 innings giving up one hit and one run. Montas needs to have a good start to take off the pressure from the A's offense.
On the mound for the Rangers is Martin Perez who sits with a 3-2 record and an ERA of 1.67. In his last start against the Houston Astros, he went nine innings giving up eight hits and zero runs.
The A’s are 3-14 in their last 17 home games. The over is 3-0-1 in the Athletics' last four games played on Thursday. The under is 11-1 in the Rangers last 12 road games. The Rangers are 4-0 in Perez’s last four starts.
Martin Perez is coming off a strong start where he didn’t give up a run, and this A’s team has had some major issues scoring runs all season. The A’s are averaging 3.4 runs per game and they are going to have issues reaching that number in this game. The lack of scoring by Oakland will allow the Rangers to win. Back Texas on the money line.
