The Los Angeles Angels and Texas Rangers meet Wednesday in MLB action at Globe Life Field. The Los Angeles Angels look for a win after winning 4 of their last 5 games. The Texas Rangers need a win after losing 4 of their last 5 games. 

The Los Angeles Angels have scored 11 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 10 games. The Angels have won 4 of their last 6 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Shohei Ohtani leads the Angels with 142 hits and 89 RBI, while Taylor Ward and Luis Rengifo have combined for 237 hits and 102 RBI. Tucker Davidson gets the ball, and he is 2-6 with a 6.96 ERA and 27 strikeouts this season. This will be Davidson’s first career game against the Rangers.

The Texas Rangers have scored 6 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 10 games. The Rangers have split their last 6 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Nathaniel Lowe leads the Rangers with 165 hits and 71 RBI, while Marcus Semien and Adolis Garcia have combined for 290 hits and 168 RBI.

The Angels are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 1-4 in their last 5 Wednesday games. The Rangers are 16-35 in their last 51 Wednesday games and 5-16 in their last 21 overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Angels last 5 road games. The over is 8-3-1 in Rangers last 12 home games. The Angels are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.

I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams or these starting pitchers. Tucker Davidson has been terrible this season, and you can understand why the Rangers would be favored at home. However, let's not act like Dane Dunning has been tearing things up this year. If I'm going to back either of these teams, it's going to be the team paying out plus money. It doesn't hurt the Angels are playing the better ball right now. Angels it is...
