The Chicago White Sox and Texas Rangers play a rubber game Thursday night.
The Chicago White Sox look for a win after winning five of their last eight games. The White Sox have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The White Sox have won four straight games when scoring more than three runs. Jose Abreu leads Chicago with 53 hits and 32 RBI while Alexei Ramirez and Adam LaRoche have combined for 43 RBI. The Chicago White Sox have split their last 10 road games. Carlos Rodon takes the hill, and he’s 1-0 with a 3.45 ERA and 25 strikeouts this season. This will be Rodon’s first career game against the Rangers.

The Texas Rangers look to stay hot after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Rangers have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Rangers have won 10 straight games when scoring more than three runs. Prince Fielder leads Texas with 75 hits and 39 RBI while Shin-Soo Choo and Adrian Beltre have combined for 43 RBI. The Texas Rangers have won five of their last seven home games. Yovani Gallardo gets the nod, and he’s 5-6 with a 3.88 ERA and 45 strikeouts this season. This will be Gallardo’s first career game against the White Sox.
The White Sox are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 6-20 in their last 26 Thursday games. The Rangers are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 5-2 in their last 7 Thursday games. The over is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings in Texas.
The Rangers continue to put runs on the board with ease and have a pitcher on the hill who is starting to turn the corner a bit. I like the red hot Rangers at home over a White Sox team that continues to be up-and-down.
