Rangers Struggled on Thursday

The Rangers really struggled on Thursday and they were defeated 5-2 against the Philadelphia Phillies. Adolis Garcia did hit a home run but he was really the only bright spot. The Rangers are averaging 4.47 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.61 runs per game. The offense is ranked 14th in the league while the pitching is ranked 19th. The biggest issue for this Rangers team has been their inconsistency. Getting the start for the Rangers will be Jose Urena who sits with a 1-3 record and an ERA of 3.29. In his last start against the Los Angeles Angels he went six innings giving up four hits and one run.

The Twins are averaging 4.49 runs while their pitching is giving 4.38 runs per game. The offense is ranked 13th in the league and they are going to need the offense to get out to a fast start.

In his last start against Cleveland, he went four innings giving up eight hits and five runs.

Minnesota Twins vs Texas Rangers Prediction

Ober is coming off a bad start, but overall he has been solid this season and he’s going to really step up in this game. The Rangers offense has been decent, but they are going to really struggle here, and that is going to be the difference here. Even though the Twins might not run up the score, they are going to score a few runs, and the Twins will get the job done. Back the Twins on the money line.
