L.A. Angels vs. Texas Rangers Preview

The Rangers are only 4-6 in their last 10 games and their superstar Josh Hamilton has really been struggling in July. MLB odds have the Rangers as home favorites with a total of 10.5 runs.

In their last games the Rangers beat the Chicago White Sox while the Angels lost to the Tampa Bay Rays 2-0.

This season the Angels have an O/U record of 43-56 and a run-line W/L record of 52-50 and the Rangers have an O/U record of 42-55 and a run-line W/L record of 48-52.

On the season the Rangers are a AL best 32-19 at home and the Angels are 25-25 on the road.

The Rangers have won 5 of their last 7 games against the Angels at home.

Ervin Santana (4-10, 6.00 ERA) gets the starting nod for the Angels and he was crushed in his last outing giving up 6 earned runs in only 1 innings. Roy Oswalt (3-1, 5.22 ERA) goes for the Rangers and in his last outing he only gave up 1 earned run in 6 innings in a win over the A’s.


Santana is 0-3 with a 9.41 ERA in his last 5 starts.

Oswalt is making his first career start against the Angels tonight and he has only given up 1 earned run in each of his last 2 starts.

The Rangers rank 4th in the Majors in runs scored and Ian Kinsler, Elvis Andrus and Michael Young are each hitting over .360 against Santana. However. Hamilton is only hitting .212 against him in his career and he is hitting .115 in his last 17 games.

Angels’ rookie star Mike Trout, who is hitting .350 with 16 homers, 49 RBIs and 31 stolen bases, has missed the last game and he is questionable for this game with a knee injury.

In some betting trends for this AL West match up the Angels are 2-7 in their last 9 road games, 3-9 in Santana’s last 12 road starts, and they have an Under record of 4-1 in their last 5 games.

The Rangers are 45-21 in their last 66 home games, 4-1 in Oswalt’s last 5 starts, and they have an Under record of 11-1 in their last 12 home games.

Jason’s Pick: Santana has struggled and the Rangers have the AL’s best home record, but something tells me the Halos will win this game.
