This season the Rangers are 31-24 at home and the Angels are 21-29 on the road.

The Rangers will go for the sweep tonight and they have won 5 of their last 6 home games against the Angels.

Jerome Williams (5-7 4.85 ERA) gets the starting nod for the Halos tonight and he gave up 4 earned runs in 5 innings in his last start taking a loss facing the Oakland A’s.

Martin Perez (3-3 4.37 ERA) goes for the Rangers and he was torched in his last outing giving up 6 earned runs in only 3 innings, but the offense bailed him out and he took a no decision against the Cleveland Indians.

Williams have the highest ERA in the Majors (8.90) of any pitcher with at least 5 starts since June 22nd. In that span he has lost his last 5 starts.


Perez is 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA in his last 3 starts and tonight will be his first career start against the Angels.

Josh Hamilton is 4 for 9 with 6 RBI in the series and 13 for 26 in his last 6 games against his former team.

Angels Closer Ernesto Frieri had converted 25 of 27 saves before blowing 2 straight save chances in this series.

In some betting trends for this AL West match up the Angels are 0-5 in their last 5 road games, 2-10 in Williams’ last 12 starts vs. a team with a winning record, and they have an Over record of 4-1-1 in their last 6 road games vs. a left-handed starter.

The Rangers are 5-12 in their last 17 overall, 4-9 in Perez’s last 13 starts, and they have an Under record of 12-3-2 in their last 17 overall.

In the last 10 games between these 2 teams in Texas the total has gone Over 8 times.

Jason’s Pick: Hard pick in this one, but I think the Angels and their offense will get to Perez and they will win tonight and snap their 5- game losing streak.
