Can Rangers Lean On Pitching Again? 

The Rangers pitching was impressive again on Friday, and they are going to need the strong pitching again here. Michael Lorenzen went five innings, giving up one hit and zero runs. The Rangers are averaging 4.24 runs, while their pitching is giving up 4.32 runs per game. The offense is ranked 17th in the league, while the pitching is ranked 14th. They do have a negative run differential of -0.08 which is 17th in the league. Getting the tart for the Rangers will be Andrew Heaney, who sits with a 3-9 record and an ERA of 4.09. In his last start against the Baltimore Orioles, he went seven innings giving up five hits and two runs. 

Tampa Bay Rays vs Texas Rangers Prediction

Andrew Heaney has had his issues this season, and it’s not going to get any easier in this game. Heaney sits with a 3-9 record overall. And the Rays are going to tee off on him here. The Rays are averaging 4.07 runs per game. The Rangers' offense isn’t going to keep up, and it’s going to be the Rays that are going to get the job done. Back the Rays on the money line to cash. This is one of the strongest plays on the board.
