The Angels take on the Rangers in Texas. Angels are 21-24 on the season and are 7-3 in their last 10 games. The Rangers are 25-20 and 5-5 in their last 10 games.
Hector Santiago takes the mound with a record of 3-2 and era of 3.93.
Colby Lewis goes for the Rangers and is 3-0 with a 2.75 era.
The Angels have been heating up, winning 4 of their last 6 and winning their last games, including a 2-0 win against the Rangers.
They’ve put up 32 runs in these 6 games, which is well above their season average of 4 runs per game.
Mike Trout continues to hit really well with a .325 average and 10 home runs. He was just moved to the 2 slot in the batting order, in an attempt to kick start the offence but the team was only able to put up 2 runs.
Santiago has been fairly inconsistent this season.
He has a great start every 3 or 4 starts then has a not so good few starts.
In his last start he lasted just 2.2 innings giving up 4 runs but in his start before that he went 8 innings giving up 0 runs.
This inconsistency resonates with the teams 21-24 record.
The Rangers have been pretty good this season, 25-20 is a very respectable start.
They’ve won 3 of their last 4 games but the 1 loss came against the Angels the other night. The Rangers have been able to manufacture runs this season with a good mix of hitting.
They average 4.4 runs per game and 44 home runs (18th in the MLB). They aren’t top 10 in any team offensive category but are able to scrape out wins.
Colby Lewis has pitched very well this season and has been consistent. He just hasn’t seen the run production to get him the wins.
He pitched 7 shutout innings in his last start and has gone 7 innings in each of his last 5 starts, giving up just 9 runs in those 35 innings.
He’s also gone at least 6 innings since April 6th and gave up 4 runs just once against the Orioles. He seems to be locked in.

Free LA Angels vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
The pitching matchup favours the Rangers considering Lewis’ consistency but every now and then Santiago has an excellent start.
Angels have been hitting the ball better as of late and manufacturing runs and the Rangers have been struggling to put up runs.
This will be a close one but I give the edge to the Rangers since they are 14-8 at home. Rangers beat the Angels in this same matchup 4-2 on April 29th as well.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Rangers ML
This game will likely be low scoring unless either team can put together a good rally, which they are capable of. I would take the under here.
