Texas Rangers vs Miami Marlins Prediction

I’m on the Marlins here. I really like what I’ve seen from Ryan Weathers, as he’s been nothing short of lights out in his last few outings and I’m tired of waiting for the Rangers to show the same form that led this team to the World Series last season. Lorenzen’s been far from a world-beater this season and the Marlins are actually hitting right-handed pitching fairly well in the last couple of weeks. I think Miami gets the job done at home in this one. Give me the Marlins.

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