The MLB is back in action today as the Texas Rangers will clash with the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This is game two of a three-game series. The Rangers will give the nod to Pedro Payanoand he will be opposed by Adrian Houser.
Texas Rangers Form
The Rangers are a team that has a good offensive potential this season. However, they have not been able to maintain that strong offensive form lately as they suffered in the series against the Indians.
To be more specific, in the three-game set, the Rangers scored a total of two runs. This is after they scored 28 runs in their previous four games. Now, Texas will aim to get back their offensive firepower in this game.
On the offensive side of the game, the Rangers score an average of 5.22 runs per game. Also, they are ranking 16th in hitting at .252 and 16th in homers with 160. On the mound, they have been poor as they are placed on the 22nd in the league in ERA at 4.89. Additionally, they are ranking 25th in WHIP at 1.43 and 22nd in K’s with 973.
Milwaukee Brewers Form
The Brewers have been playing well this season. However, they are now 3.5 games out of the first in their division. Moreover, their form is not good at the moment as they lost 6 of their last 10 games. And now the brewers need to play well in this series, especially since they have a three-game set at home vs the Twins after this series. After that, they are on the road against the Nationals and at the Cardinals as well. Therefore, they need a win in this game.
On the offensive side of the game, the Brewers score an average of 4.80 runs per game. Also, they are placed on the 19th spot in hitting at .248 and 5th in homers with 186. On the mound, they are placed on the 19th spot in the league in ERA at 4.64 while also ranking 17th in WHIP at 1.36 and 8th in K’s with 1063.
I side with the Brewers in this one. They need to keep winning in order to maintain a chance to get into the playoffs this season. Also, they are playing well in front of their home fans. Therefore, take the Brewers in this one.
