Struggling Pitchers Square Off In Arlington

A pair of starting pitchers who have been slumping will try to head into the all-star break on a positive note when the Texas Rangers and the Los Angeles Angels meet Sunday. Rangers starter Yu Darvish has a 5.64 ERA in his past four starts while Angels pitcher J.C. Ramirez has a 6.86 ERA in the same span.

  • The Rangers are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games at home against the Angels.
