Oakland is done for the year and seemingly have a long road back into contention, but never count out Billy Beane and his great value finds.
He’s got a nice power bat in Khris Davis to build around next year; Davis has hit smacked 37 homers on the year and 94 RBI while hitting a respectable .250.
The relatively unknown Raul Alcantara takes to the hill for Oakland, entering the game with two career starts to his name.
The 23-year old undrafted free agent signee out of the Dominican has recorded an 0-1 record with a 7.27 ERA and 1.62 WHIP in his first MLB action across those two career starts.
The Texas Rangers are on the other end of the spectrum that the A’s, as they have spent years stock piling young talent and now have a legitimate contender entering the post-season.
The Rangers sit in 1st in the AL West and have a strong lineup and a rotation that’s led by aces in Cole Hamels and Yu Darvish.
Darvish will take the mound at home against a bad Oakland team in what should be quite a favorable matchup for him.
Yu enters the game with a 3.28 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP with a tremendous 103 strikeouts in just 82.1 innings, as he was hampered by injuries.
He should have no problem tallying another W in the win column to add to his 5-4 record.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- The A’s are 31-440 on the road
- Oakland is 6-4 in their last 10 games.
- Alcantara has yet to escape the 5th inning in either of his two starts so far .
- Texas is 47-22 at home.
- The Rangers are 7-6 in September to date.

Based on the pitching matchup and the Rangers’ offense being vastly superior than the A’s’, this should be a blowout in the desert.
