Texas moved to 32-18 following the win over Baltimore. The Rangers have now won six of their last seven games, scoring eleven or more runs in three of those victories. The Texas offense is scoring 4.88 runs per game, while batting .270, with a .339 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.77 ERA, with a 1.20 WHIP. Leody Taveras has a hit in nine of the last ten games, and he leads Texas in batting (.310).

Andrew Heaney (3-3, 4.13 ERA, 23 Ks) will take the mound for Texas. The tenth-year pitcher has found success in Austin through the first two months of the season, and he earned his third win of the season after striking out five in six scoreless innings against Colorado on Sunday. Heaney delivered his fifth quality start in six outings, and he’s six strikeouts in three of those appearances.
Orioles Betting Preview
Baltimore moved to 33-18 after losing to Texas. The Orioles were blitzed in game one, and they’ll look to respond Saturday. The Baltimore offense is scoring 4.95 runs per game, while batting .252, with a .329 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.09 ERA, with a 1.29 WHIP. Cedric Mullins has a hit in six of the last eight games, and he leads Baltimore in RBI (39), with Ryan Mountcastle creeping in at 36 RBI homered in game two to bring his team leads in HR (11), with 36 RBI. Austin Hays has multiple hits in three of his last five games, and he now leads Baltimore in batting (.311).
Dean Kremer (5-1, 4.61 ERA, 43 Ks) will make the home start for Baltimore. The fourth-year pitcher tossed a season-high seven strikeouts in 5.1 innings in Toronto on Sunday to lead the O’s to a victory over the Jays, which marked his their fourth straight victory with him on the mound. Kremer has been reliable during this stretch, and there’s hope he can hold up against a tough Texas lineup.

Corey’s Free Pick
Two dark horse American League pennant contender will face off in another game that could see some fireworks. Texas is playing extremely well right now on both sides, and they’ve quietly become one of the best teams in baseball. Baltimore should attempt to shake back today, but I like going right back to the Rangers in game two.
