Texas Fail To Get Sweep Back To Back Times
The Texas Rangers come into this game off a 4-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals. The Rangers will going for the sweep on Sunday on the road but ended up losing the final game of the series. That was the second series in a row that the Rangers won the first 2 games and lost the final game of the series.
The Rangers are currently tied for 2nd place in the American League West Division with a 45-46 record. They are 16.5 games behind the Houston Astros for the top spot in the AL West Division. The Rangers have gone 5-5 in their last 10 games overall.
O’s Look For First Win vs. AL West Team
The O’s come into this game off getting swept at home by the defending world champion, Chicago Cubs. The O’s allowed 26 runs in 3 games against the Cubs, while only scoring 11 runs in the same 3 games.
The Orioles are now 42-49 and are tied for last place in the American League East Division. The O’s have gone 2-8 in their last 10 overall and have yet to win a game this year against a team from the American League West Division, going 0-3 on the year.
O’s Win At Home
The O’s are a much different team at home then they are on the road. They are 25-19 this year at home compared to 17-30 while on the road. They get a break by getting the opportunity to face Andrew Cashner, who has simply been terrible! I think the O’s will tag him early and knock him out of the game by the 5th inning.
