The Texas Rangers are coming into this game without a win on the season after being swept in their first series against the Cleveland Indians. This comes as a big surprise to me as the Rangers played very well last year, making it all the way to the Division Championship where they lost to the Toronto Bluejays. I'm 100% certain that they will find a way to get a win for us at home today.
The Oakland Athletics will have right hander Raul Alcantara on the mound tonight. If there is any pitcher in this league that I'm afraid to bet against he will not one. Alcantara should be considered mediocre at best. Oakland is 1-4 in his last 5 starts and 4-12 in their last 16 games overall. Alcantara also went 1-3 with a 7.25 ERA in his last 5 starts for the A's last season.
The public is surely backing the Rangers heavily tonight but don't be afraid to jump on the bandwagon. You have to believe the Rangers will be highly motivated to finally get their first win of the season at home. Look for the Rangers to rout the Athletics at home to get their first win on the season!
12 Rangers 5 Athletics
Best of luck!
