The Los Angeles Angels and Texas Rangers face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Globe Life Field. The two teams have split the first two games of this series. 

The Angels sit with a 65-84 record overall and far too often the offense has had games like they did on Wednesday when they only managed to score two runs. The Angels offense has been the biggest issue this season adn they are averaging only 3.82 runs per game which is 25th in the league. Shohei Ohtani has hit 34 home runs and driven in 89 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Rangers who sit with a 64-84 record overall and they scored seven runs on Wednesday on the way to the five-run victory.  The Rangers offense is the strength averaging 4.42 runs per game. The pitching hasn’t been good enough this season and that’s why they aren’t in the playoff race. Adlois Garcia has hit 25 home runs and driven in 94 RBIs so far this season.

On the mound for the Angels will be Michael Lorenzen and he sits with a 7-6 record and an ERA of 4.74. In his last start against Seattle, he went five innings giving up four hits and three runs. 

On the mound for the Rangers will be Martin Perez who sits with a 12-6 record and an ERA of 2.84. In his last start against the Rays, he went 5.1 innings giving up nine hits and three runs. 

The Angels are 0-5 in their last five games on Thursday. The over is 4-0 in Perez’s last four starts against a team with a losing record. The over is 4-0 in Lorenzen’s last 4 road starts vs. a team with a losing record.

Perez has been good this season, but in his last start he really struggled giving up three runs. Lorenzen is also coming off a start where he gave up three runs, and he sits with an ERA of 4.74. Look for both teams to run up the score and that is going to lead to this game going over the total.
