The Texas Rangers and the Washington Nationals meet Sunday in MLB action from Nationals Park. This will be the finale in a three-game series. The Rangers took a five-run win in the opener, then on Saturday Washington evened it up with a five-run victory of their own. Check back all season long for free MLB picks at Sports Chat Place.

Texas Rangers 

The Rangers scored twice in three different innings Friday, cruising to a 7-2 win. On Saturday Texas gave up eight runs in the first three innings in an 8-3 loss. Starter Andrew Heaney gave up seven earned on eight hits and a walk in 3.0 innings. 

For the starter job in the Sunday finale the Rangers are going with Dane Dunning. In his 19 games (11 starts) this year Dunning is 8-1 with a 2.61 ERA and 55 Ks in 86.1 innings. Dunning is 19-19 with a 4.02 ERA in 82 career games (72 starts). 

Washington Nationals 

Over on the Nationals’ side, they had six team hits (and gave up 10) in the Friday opener of this series. In game two Washington out-hit the Rangers 12-8 during the victory. Jake Irvin managed 5.0 innings in the start with two earned, five hits and two walks. 

It’ll be Patrick Corbin in the starting role for the Nats on Sunday. In 18 starts this year Corbin is 5-10 with a 5.13 ERA and 68 Ks in 101.2 innings. Corbin is 92-113 with a 4.36 ERA in 296 career games (278 starts). 

The Rangers are 10-4 in their last 14 Sunday games and 4-1 in their last five versus a lefty starter. Texas is 5-2 in their last seven versus the NL East. 

Meanwhile, the Nationals are 15-38 in their last 53 at home and 19-50 in their last 69 versus a team with a winning record. Washington is 7-19 in their last 26 interleague home games

ANDREW’S FREE PICK 

I’ll stay Rangers here. The line’s too thick to mess with, though. Dunning is in a nice groove these days. Over his last three starts, Dunning is 2-0 with five earned over 21.2 innings on 15 hits and three walks. In the Saturday game two, Texas got a rough start from Heaney, but after the third inning they outscored the Royals 3-0. I like the Rangers to bounce back and take the series on Sunday, but I’m probably not touching it.
