Rangers Continue to Impress

The Rangers still aren’t being talked about enough for how well they have played this season. In the first game of this series the pitching was good giving up only three runs and that was enough to win on the run line. Mitch Garver finished with three hits and two RBIs. The Rangers are averaging 5.77 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.26 runs per game. The offense is ranked 1st in baseball. On the mound for the Rangers will be Jordan Montgomery who sits with a 7-9 record and an ERA of 3.40. In his last start against the Marlins he went six innings giving up six hits and two runs. 

A’s Continue to be Awful

The A’s have been awful this season and it’s going to be an issue again in this game. In the first game of this series the pitching actually wasn’t awful, but they scored only three runs and the offense has been a big issue again. The A’s are averaging 3.59 runs while their pitching is giving up 6.01 runs per game. The offense is ranked 30th while the pitching is ranked 30th. Brent Rooker has hit 18 home runs and driven in 48 RBIs. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The Rangers once again are going to have no issue here. Montgomery was good in his last start, and the A’s offense is awful. The A’s are going to only score two or three runs total and that is going to be the difference as Texas is going to have no issue winning here. The Rangers will win by seven or eight runs total. Back the Rangers 1.5 to cash. 

Shane’s Pick Rangers -1.5
