The MLB is back in action today as the Los Angeles Angels will clash with the Texas Rangers. This will be game two of a four-game series from Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas.
Los Angeles Angels Form
The Angels are heading into this game after some interesting results. To be more specific, they lost two games against the Pirates but they managed to bounce back with a 4-1 record in their last 5 games including wins against the White Sox as well. However, the Halos are still sitting well outside of playoff contention as they will are 11.5 games out of the 2nd wildcard slot in the American League. Therefore, it is safe to say that they are out of the playoff contention this season
On the offensive side of the game, the Halos score an average of 5.06 runs per game which is the 11th record in the league in scoring. Also, they are placed on the 13th spot in hitting at .254 and 14th in homers with 181. On the mound, they are placed on the 26th in the league in ERA at 5.08, while also ranking 18th in WHIP at 1.37 and 11th in K’s with 1101.
Texas Rangers Form
The Rangers are a good team this season. Moreover, their improvement this year can be seen through their results. However, they fell short in their last series against the Twins as they lost all 4 games.
An additional problem for Texas is their game on the mound as they cannot fix that so far this season.
And this was especially notable in the game against the Twins as they allowed 35 runs in the four-games.
On the offensive side of the game, the Rangers score an average of 5.10 runs per game. And this is the 10th best record in the league in scoring. Also, they have the 19th record in the league in hitting at .250 and 17th in homers with 175. On the mound, they are placed on the 24th in the league in ERA at 4.99, while also ranking 27th in WHIP at 1.45 and 20th in K’s with 1060
I expect a Rangers win in this game. They are an improved team this season with good offensive potential and good individuals. On the other side, the Angels managed to win some games recently. But that was expected as they beat teams like the White Sox and the Pirates. Take the Rangers to win this game.
