The Texas Rangers and Oakland Athletics face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at RingCentral Coliseum. On Thursday it was the Rangers that won 4-1. The Rangers scored three runs in the 9th inning to secure the victory. 

The Texas Rangers come into this game with a 20-23 record overall and they have won two games in a row and over the last two games they have given up three runs total. The Rangers offense is averaging only 4.07 runs per game so when they have found success it’s usually needed to be strong pitching that is good. Adolis Garcia has been good hitting six home runs and driving in 27 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the A’s who sit with a 19-28 record overall, and they have lost two games in a row. Over the last two games, the A’s have scored only three runs total, and that type of offense isn’t good enough to find wins. The A”s are averaging only 3.41 runs per game which is 28th best in the league. The pitching has been decent giving up only 4.022 runs per game.
