Philadelphia is 4-0 in their last 4 interleague games and 15-3 in their last 18 games. The over is 6-2 in Philadelphia’s last 8 Tuesday games. Texas is 4-0 in their last 4 interleague games and 2-6 in their last 8 home games. The under is 7-2 in Texas’ last 9 home games. Philadelphia is 0-7 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.
The Rangers are coming into this game with their ace on the mound and will look to get a much-needed win. Martin Perez has allowed two runs or fewer in four of his last five starts, but did have an outing where he allowed six earned runs to the White Sox over five innings. Philadelphia is starting Kyle Gibson, who has allowed nine runs in his last 17.1 innings pitched. Philadelphia is playing very good baseball right now, but I am taking the Rangers at home with Perez on the mound.
