Los Angeles Angels vs. Texas Rangers, second game of the series. Last night the Angels did not win the game and they did not complete our -1.5 runline bet. Although the team had the advantage for a long time during the game. The Rangers scored first, but that did not help. But after half of the game it was when the Rangers showed they could do damage in Anaheim.
Los Angeles Angels: We are on the right track.
The Angels hope to do the same tonight. Try to win the game to secure the series. Last night the game finished 3-4, the first run was for the Rangers. In the third inning the Angels scored the only three runs they had in the game. Between the sixth and seventh innings the Rangers closed the game with three runs. Now the record is negative at home for a single defeat 13-14 in the season.

Texas Rangers: Another surprise tonight.
The Rangers caused a lot of damage last night in Anaheim. Smyly did a poor job but it served as something for the Angels to relax in the game. The best player of the Rangers was Shin-Soo Choo with 2 runs, 2 hits and 1 RBI in 5 at bats. The Rangers were not so productive but that little production of 7 hits was enough to win the game.
