The New York Yankees and Texas Rangers face off Wednesday in an MLB showdown at Globe Life Field. The Yankees have won two of the first three games of this series.
The Yankees sit with a 99-62 record overall and all the pressure is off this team now as they head into the playoffs. Aaron Judge finally hit home run number 62 on Tuesday night, so there isn’t a whole lot riding on this last game now. Don’t be shocked if they run out a lot of their bench players in this game. The Yankees are averaging 5.02 runs per game which is second in the league.
On the other side of this matchup is the Rangers who sit with a 67-94 record overall and he used good pitching in the second game on Tuesday to secure the win. Kolby Allard went four innings giving up two hits and one run. The Rangers are averaging 4.38 runs per game which is 12th in the league. Adolis Garcia is having a strong season hitting 27 home runs and driving in 101 RBIs.
On the mound for the Yankees will be Domingo German who sits with a 2-4 record and an ERA of 3.31. In his last start against the Baltimore Orioles, he went 5.1 innings giving up three hits and two runs.
On the mound for the Rangers will be Glenn Otto who sits with a 6-10 record and an ERA of 4.72. In his last start against the Angels, he went six innings and gave up three runs.
The Yankees are 4-1 in their last five road games. The Rangers are 1-5 in their last six home games. The under is 4-0 in Otto’s last four starts on grass. The under is 9-2 in German’s last 11 road starts.
I do have a bit of concern about who the Yankees will start in this game, but I still think it’s going to be the visiting team that gets the success here. Otto has had some major issues this year and he sits with an ERA of 4.72. The Yankees are going to find success here and win this game on the run line.
