Rangers Can’t Keep Losing to Bad Teams

A’s Trying to Spoil Things

On the other side of this matchup is the A’s who are trying to spoil the Rangers season in this series. It has no doubt been a bad season, but they have really shown some signs of life the last couple of weeks. Heading into Saturday’s game the Athletics had won two games in a row. The A’s are averaging 3.69 runs while thier pitching is giving up 5.8 runs per game. The offense overall is ranked 30th in baseball. On the mound for the a’s will be Luis Medina who sits with a 3-8 record and an ERA of 5.46.

Shane’s Free Pick

The Rangers are going to have no issue running up the score in this game. Medina has had his issues this season and the Rangers are still one of the best offenses in baseball. The A’s are going to really struggle to get the offense going against Jon Gray and that is going to be the difference as the Rangers are going to get the job done here. 

Shane’s Pick Rangers -1.5
