Shane’s Free Pick
This game is going to be a pitchers duel. Peralta has been lights out heading into this game and he’s going to dominate the Rangers offense. Dane Dunning is also going to have a strong start here, and that is going to be the difference here. Neither team is going to finish with more than three runs, and this game will stay under the total. Back the under.
