This Texas matchup includes two longtime rivals in the sport.
The Houston Astros are struggling this season, they are in a different spot than expected at this point.
The Rangers are playing well, and they finally got their ace Darvish back from Tommy John surgery
The Houston Astros lineup is led by some of the bigger names in baseball. They are led by Jose Altuve. Altuve is hitting .336 with 31 extra base hits and 34 runs batted in on the year.
George Springer is having a good year; he is hitting .282 with 13 dingers and 36 RBIs on the year. The young Phenom Carlos Correa is having another solid year at shortstop. Correa is hitting .262 with 8 home runs and 32 runs knocked in this season.
Correa and the Astros look to improve at the plate in June.
The Astros have Doug Fister on the mound and he has had a solid year so far. He is currently 5-3 on the year with 39 strikeouts and a 3.51 E.R.A.
Fister was last in action in a win against the Oakland A’s. He threw in 6 shutout innings where he gave up 4 hits. Fister also struck out 3 batters and walked 2.
The Texas Rangers lineup seems to be up and down throughout the season. They are led by the right fielder Nomar Mazara. Mazara is hitting .319 on the year with 10 home runs and 27 runs batted in.
Ian Desmond is off to another hot start. He is hitting .307 with 7 home runs and 35 RBIs. Adrian Beltre’s numbers are right there again this season. He is hitting .272 with a team leading 10 home runs and 40 runs batted in.
The Rangers lineup looks to become more solid throughout the lineup.
The Rangers have Yu Darvish taking his 3rd start after an offseason surgery. He is currently 2-0 with a 3.38 E.R.A with 12 strikeouts.
He looked good again in his last start where he was victorious against the Seattle Mariners.
He threw in 5.2 innings where he gave up 3 earned runs on 6 hits. Darvish fanned 5 Mariners and walked one.
Darvish looks to continue on the success coming off of surgery.

Free Houston Astros vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
This matchup of Texas rivals will always be exciting. I am taking the Rangers in this one at home. I figured that is Darvish were to get beat around, he would’ve had that in an earlier start.
I believe he is here to stay.
