Sunday afternoon major league baseball and we will see the Texas Rangers take on the Los Angeles Angels in game 3 of their 3 game series from Angel Stadium in Anaheim. Free Pick to follow. First pitch is scheduled for a 3:35 PM (Eastern) start time and the game will be televised locally.
Over/ Under: 8 O -120
The Halos were the hottest team in the league coming into this series, but the Rangers have cooled them off a bit by taking the first 2 games. Overall the Halos have lost 3 in a row after they had won 17 of 20. LA Is now back tied with Houston in the AL West, while the Rangers are just 6.5 games behind those two.
The Rangers rank 14th in scoring (4.16 rpg), 20th in hitting (.248) and 10th in homers (97), while on the mound they are 26th in ERA (4.29) and 28th in WHIP (1.38). The Angels rank 15th in scoring (4.13 rpg), 22nd in hitting (.247) and 7th in homers (100), while on the mound they are 8th in ERA (3.56) and 6th in WHIP (1.21).
Getting the ball for the Rangers tonight will be Nick Martinez, who is 5-5 with a 3.92 ERA in 17 starts this year, while on the road he has gone 3-3 with a 3.94 ERA in 10 starts. Nick is 1-2 with a 2.08 ERA in 6 games (5 starts) vs the Angels in his career.
Taking the hill for the Angels tonight will be Andrew Heaney, who is 4-0 with a 1.57 ERA in 5 starts this year overall, while at home he is 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA in 3 starts. He has yet to face the Rangers in his career.
Pick: I will go with the Halos on the runline in this one. Nick Martinez had a solid start to the year, but he comes in at 0-2 with a 9.72 ERA in his last 3 starts, with all 3 being on the road. The Rangers have lost 7 of his last 8 starts and have been outscored by 2 runs or more in 6 of those 7 losses. It will be hard for him to put up good numbers vs an Angels team that has been hot offensively of late. Andrew Heaney get the ball for the Halos and he has been awesome in his five starts this year and should be able to keep this Texas offense down in this one. For the year Andrew is 4-0 with a 1.57 ERA. This one should be easy for LA, especially after losing the first 2 games of this series .
