The Rangers are still in first place but they are seeing their comfortable lead in the division whittle away thanks to Houston’s surge and their own poor play.
They lost the opening game of this series and will be looking to close this one. The Rangers are getting healthier but they are still not healthy. The Angels are more than happy to make them work for it.
The Rangers are bleeding their lead away.
They have not had a series win since the last week of June against Boston and they will need some players to step up if they are going to see this thing through.
Chief among them are veteran Adrian Beltre and Prince Fielder. Combined they have just four homers more than Rougned Odor.
The spunky second baseman is showing pop but has one of the worst K/B ratios in the league a 74/8.
The Rangers just activated Yu Darvish which may be a huge help down the stretch but they are still giving Martin Perez a regular turn with Kyle Lohse, Derek Holland and Colby Lewis unavailable.
I am not a big fan of Perez who always seems to benefit from luck more than anything else.
He gives up way too many base runners so his margin for error is super slim.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels have been playing much better of late. They came out of the All-Star game hot winning four in a row heading into Tuesday night’s action.
That gave them eight wins in their last ten games but they were a little too dreadful for most of the first half to be considered a real threat. Really they are just getting to a certain level of respectability.
There is always next year when you have a player like Mike Trout.
Amidst the Angels mediocrity Hector Santiago looks primed to set a career high in wins this season.
He has seven already and only needs to get to double digits to do so. He has been on fire of late with three straight wins in which he has given up 0ER over 20 innings.
That’s a little too good so you wonder how long he can keep it up. Amazingly he has averaged 11 runs of support over those three games. That is definitely not going to hold.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
I was going to jump to the over because of Perez but it looks like the markets might have him figured out – he is just 7-11 O/U this season. This is a very tough one to call with the Rangers struggling right now.
L.A. has the hot hand with Santiago on the hill.
The team is 13-6 when he is on the mound this season but two of those losses have come against these Rangers. There is not a ton to go on on this side either.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Angels ML
When the number is posted this line will probably be about even so I think there is a good opportunity with the home team. Probably not going to be a low scoring affair though so taking the over provided it is in the 8.5 range is good value too.
