Moneyline bettors who got the Rangers at -245 were rewarded, while the 12 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors. Texas hopes solid pitching and defense that led to their last victory - a 10-strikeout performance from Colby Lewis - will prevail again after their 9-3 victory against Houston at Rangers Ballpark.

The Padres were a 2-1 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Athletics. That made winners of bettors who got San Diego at +127 on the moneyline, while the total score (3) was good news for UNDER bettors.
