Rangers Hold Slightest Edge Against Angels

The Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels find themselves fighting for a wild-card spot when they continue their four-game set in La La Land on Tuesday. The two teams have battled back and forth so far this year with the Rangers holding a 6-4 edge in the season series. That being said, the Rangers have won three of the past four while averaging 5.0 runs per game.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Rangers’ last 3 games against the Angels.
  • The Angels are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games at home with Ricky Nolasco as the starting pitcher.
  • The Rangers are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games on the road against teams with winning records.

Tyson Ross will get the start for the Rangers in his third outing since returning from the DL. The time away has done little to help the struggling Ross, as the righty has surrendered eight runs while walking 11 batters in his past two starts. Ross faced the Angels once this season and pitched 5.2 innings of one-run ball, which was one of the better outings of his injury-riddled campaign.

The Halos will counter with the horribly inconsistent Ricky Nolasco. When the 11-year vet is on his game, he is near untouchable, with a 1.40 ERA in his wins. But he has been dreadful in losses or no-decisions, with an ERA approaching 7.00. To make matters worse, Nolasco has a 17.55 ERA in two starts against the Rangers this season.
