Los Angeles Angels vs Texas Rangers
TAKE: RANGERS +110 WIN 10-5
The Texas Rangers defeated the Boston Red Sox 7-1 last Sunday, avoiding a sweep in a three-game home series. It was their fourth victory in the last nine outings, and the Rangers have failed to win two straight contests during that stretch. Texas improved to 14-19 on the season, still trailing the Angels and Astros by huge eight games. Over their last six outings, the Rangers have scored 22 runs on an underwhelming .205/.263/.389 batting line. Their pitching staff has recorded a 4.50 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and .235 batting average against in that stretch.
The Angels’ Reid Detmers will take the hill Tuesday in Arlington, and the 22-year-old lefty is 2-1 with a 3.77 ERA, 4.04 FIP, and 0.84 WHIP in six starts (31 frames) in 2022. Last Tuesday, Detmers threw a no-hitter in a 12-0 thrashing of the Tampa Bay Rays.
The Rangers Taylor Hearn will toe the rubber Tuesday, aiming for his second straight win. The 27-year-old left-hander tossed five scoreless innings in a 3-1 victory to Kansas City last Thursday, yielding just one hit and three free passes. Hearn is now 2-2 with a 5.26 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in six starts (25.2 frames) this season.
You know how hard it is to come into the next game AFTER you tossed a NO-HITTER, pitchers normaly get raked and are out of the game by the 4th inning, just saying, look at the trends!
