The Los Angeles Angels and the Texas Rangers meet in an AL West division matchup from Globe Life Field on Tuesday.
The Los Angeles Angels will look to build on their 9-4 win over the Rangers from Monday’s series opener. Mike Trout leads the Angels with a .393 batting average and a .521 OBP along with a team-high 6 doubles, 6 home runs and 14 RBIs while Shohei Ohtani has a team-high 7 home runs, 16 RBIs and got the win on the mound in Monday’s matchup. David Fletcher has a team-high 24 hits while Ohtani also has 5 doubles and a pair of triples this season. Jose Quintana is expected to start here and is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA and 17 strikeouts this season. In his career, Quintana is 1-3 with a 4.18 ERA and 19 strikeouts against the Rangers.
The Texas Rangers will look to bounce back from their loss to the Angels on Monday. Nate Lowe leads the Rangers with 6 home runs and 21 RBIs while Nick Solak leads the Rangers with a .286 batting average. Joey Gallo has a .436 OBP while Isiah Kiner-Falefa has a team-high 25 hits. Charlie Culberson leads Texas with 4 doubles while Solak and Adolis Garcia each have 5 home runs this season. Mike Foltynewicz is expected to start here and is 0-3 with a 5.32 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. This will be Foltynewicz’s second career start against the Angels.
Los Angeles is 22-46 in their last 68 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 games overall while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record. Texas is 1-4 in their last 5 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 game two matchups while the under is 4-0-1 in their last 5 home games against a left-handed starter.
I saw this line and had to do a double-take because I thought I was seeing things. We’re getting a single-digit total between Jose Quintana and Mike Foltynewicz, two pitchers that have been known to get tossed around more often than not when they take the bump. I think the over could hit again by the end of the first half of the game, so give me the over here.
