In his last start against the Boston Red Sox, he went 4.2 innings giving up eight hits and five runs. 

Rangers Offense Struggled

The Rangers offense really struggled on Tuesday scoring only one run and that led to the defeat. Dane Dunning gave up four runs in five innings but the bullpen really locked down.  The Rangers are averaging 4.42 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.3 runs per game. The offense is ranked 10th in the league while the pitching is ranked 15th in the league. Adolis Garcia has hit 13 home runs and driven in 40 RBIs so far this season.

Detroit Tigers vs Texas Rangers Prediction

Kenta Maeda was good to start the season, but he has had some major issues as of late and in his last start against the Boston Red Sox he gave up five runs in 4.2 innings. The Rangers offense is averaging 4.42 runs per game and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. This game is going to get out of hand early as the Rangers offense is going to put on a show. Back the Rangers on the run line.
