The Red Sox have shocked everyone in the AL East this year, as they now have a decent lead atop the division and that seems pretty crazy considering where they were projected to be this year. The Red Sox certainly could extend that lead atop the division, as they take on a struggling Texas Rangers team at Globe Life Field in Arlington this Thursday.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox were efficient in sweeping the New York Mets in their last series winning both of those games by a 1 run margin and really showing off some of their strong pitchers out of the bullpen.
Their last game specifically was impressive against the Mets, as they were able to take down New York by a score of 1-0 and that was with Jacob deGrom pitching, so being able to pick up a win in that spot was great considering the Mets pitcher has been incredible thus far.
Martin Perez will head to the mound for this one and although Perez has had his moments this year, he has not been able to get into the 4th inning in his last two starts and he now enters this game with and ERA getting dangerously close to 6.
The Texas Rangers are not going to be relevant in terms of the playoffs this year, but they sure are fun to watch, as they have found plenty of success with their bats and their pitching staff gives up plenty of runs to the opposition making for great games for neutrals.
Second basemen Nick Solak has been one of the main driving forces behind this solid start for the Rangers offense, as he is currently hitting over .300 and has 7 home runs and against Martin Perez he should be looking to make that 8.
The Texas Rangers send their ace to the hill on Thursday in Kyle Gibson who has been stellar so far this year with a 2-0 record and a 2.30 ERA to go along with 23 strikeouts, so he is no doubt prepared for the challeneg that this Red Sox batting lineup brings.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
The Texas Rangers have a huge advantage on the mound and I am pretty surprised to see the home team as an underdog in this spot, as that advantage is pretty huge. The Rangers do not have as good of a batting lineup as Thursday’s opponents, but they can do enough to edge out the Red Sox and I see them winning a close game and cashing as a home dog for us behind a quality start from Gibson.
