The Miami Marlins and Texas Rangers face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Globe Life Field. On Saturday it was the Rangers that were able to secure the 9-8 victory. 

Alcantara Turning the Corner?

Sandy Alcantara has been one of the biggest disappointments this season, but it appears he is finally turning it around. In his last start against the Philadelphia Phillies he went eight innings giving up four hits and zero runs. Two starts ago against the Tampa Bay Rays he went nine innings and gave up one run. Alcantara is finally starting to look dominant again and that is going to be a big key as this season winds down. The Marlins are averaging 4.07 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.34 runs per game. The offense overall is ranked 26th best in baseball. 

Rangers Top Notch Offense

The Rangers offense has been strong all season and on Friday night they were good again scoring six runs. Adolis Garcia had a strong game finishing with three hits, two runs, two RBIs, and two home runs. The Rangers are averaging 5.76 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.27 runs per game. The offense is ranked 1st while the pitching is ranked 10th. Andrew Heaney will be on the mound for the Rangers and he sits with an 8-6 record and an ERA of 4.36. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The Rangers have a top offense, but now they are facing off against a pitcher in Alcantara that has been lights out the last couple of starts. Over his last two starts he has given up only one run, and the Rangers bats are going to really struggle here. The Marlins might not run up the score, but they are going to score enough here to get the job done. Back the Marlins on the money line. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
