Miami Marlins vs Texas Rangers Prediction

Both pitchers are coming off a strong start and that is going to be the case again here. Lorenzen in his last start gave up one run, and Weathers in his last start gave up zero runs. Both of the offenses are going to really struggle to get anything going and that is going to be the difference. There will be only three or four total runs scored, and this game is going to stay under the total. Back the under.
