The Texas Rangers and the Milwaukee Brewers will match up on the MLB circuit to finish their series on Sunday.

In the Friday opener, the Brewers eked out a 6-5 win. On Saturday, Milwaukee did it again with a 3-2 victory.

For the Sunday game, the Rangers will be sending out Mike Minor in the start. Over his 147.0 innings and 10-6 mark this year, Minor has a 3.06 ERA with 148 Ks and 50 BBs.

Texas managed five hits in the loss Saturday. No Rangers player had multiple knocks.

Over on the Brewers’ side, they’re going with Jordan Lyles on Sunday. This season across 92.1 innings and a 7-7 mark, Lyles has a 4.97 ERA with 95 Ks and 37 BBs.

Milwaukee posted nine hits in the Saturday win and were able to hold on thanks to a group effort. Trent Grisham managed three hits and two runs.

The Rangers are 1-5 in their last six in game three of a series and 1-4 in Minor’s last five Sunday starts. Texas is 1-4 in Minor’s last five interleague starts and the under is 4-1 in their last five in game three of a series.

Meanwhile, the Brewers are 1-4 in their last five Sunday games and the over is 5-0 in their last five Sunday games. Milwaukee is 9-4 in their last 13 versus a lefty starter and 20-8 in their last 28 at home versus a left-handed starter.

Minor had a pretty rough four-game patch with a total of 17 earned runs allowed in that time, but posted zero earned in a win over 7.0 innings in Cleveland his last time out.

As for Lyles, he’s given up two earned in 10.0 innings over his last two starts—both wins. I’m leaning toward Lyles and the Brewers at home here, but it’ll probably be a close one.
