The Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels meet Sunday in MLB action at Angel Stadium. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Texas Rangers have scored 21 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 straight games. The Rangers have won 10 of their last 15 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Marcus Semien leads the Rangers with 36 hits and 27 RBI, while Nathaniel Lowe and Josh Jung have combined for 64 hits and 46 RBI. Martin Perez gets the ball, and he is 4-1 with a 2.41 ERA and 26 strikeouts this season. Perez is 8-6 with a 3.87 ERA and 69 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.

The Los Angeles Angels have scored 17 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 7 of their last 10 games. The Angels have won 8 of their last 10 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Mike Trout leads the Angels with 37 hits and 20 RBI, while Shohei Ohtani and Gio Urshela have combined for 68 hits and 31 RBI. Jose Suarez gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 7.89 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. Suarez is 3-0 with a 3.23 ERA and 31 strikeouts in his career against the Rangers.

The Rangers are 5-0 in their last 5 Sunday games and 5-2 in their last 7 overall. The Angels are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 3 of a series and 5-1 in their last 6 overall. The over is 4-1 in Rangers last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Angels last 5 Sunday games. The Rangers are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.

This line makes no sense to me. Sure, the Los Angeles Angels are at home and their offense has picked up lately. However, the Texas Rangers have consistently put up offense, and they have a clear edge with Perez on the mound. Jose Suarez has looked awful in a limited role, and Martin Perez would be an all star if the game was tomorrow. I don’t get it. Give me the Rangers.
