The Rangers have won six of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Nick Solak leads the Rangers with 27 hits and 14 RBI while Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Nate Lowe have combined for 49 hits and 29 RBI. Dane Dunning gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 3.06 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. This will be Dunning’s first career game against the Angels.
The Angels are 2-5 in their last 7 road games and 5-16 in their last 21 Wednesday games. The Rangers are 7-2 in their last 9 during game 3 of a series and 1-6 in their last 7 home games. The over is 5-1 in Angels last 6 overall. The over is 4-1 in Rangers last 5 overall. The Angels are 2-7 in the last 9 meetings in Texas.
Neither of these teams are consistent and Cobb has been horrible through three starts, allowing 10 earned runs in 14.1 innings. Dane Dunning has been solid this season, allowing six runs through 17.2 innings while striking out 18. Neither team is playing well, so I'll take my chances with the plus money and the home team along with the better pitcher. Give me the Rangers.
