Both teams come limping into this one, losing 3 straight games.
Texas fell in the final 3 games of a 4 game set against Toronto while the Tigers were swept away in Cleveland.
Offense was the biggest problem for this Rangers team in their weekday series with the Blue Jays.
The Rangers scored 2 runs in the series opener, but managed to grab a win thanks to their pitching. Then they put up performances of just 2,1, and then 1 again as they lost 3 of 4 to Toronto. Offense has been an odd problem for the Rangers this year as this team simply cannot find any sort of consistency.
The Rangers will send out Cole Hamels to try and play stopper. Hamels has gone 3-0 on the year with a 3.30 ERA this season. Hamels received a ND in his last start as he went 5.1 innings, allowing 7 hits and 3 runs against Baltimore. Hamels last decision came on 4/20 as he took down Houston by allowing 1 run in 6.2 innings.
The Tigers have been a tale of two teams this year. When it comes to playing Cleveland, they can’t seem to figure things out. When it’s anybody else, things are fine.
The Tigers manufactured just 7 runs over the this past week, as they fell to 0-6 against the Indians. It’s been a combination of both the offense and pitching as their starters continued to dig their offense holes. In turn, the offense did nothing to help dig them out of it.
Trying to get back into the win column Jordan Zimmerman will take the hill. These are the kinds of situations he was signed for. Zimmerman is a perfect 5-0 on the year and has a stellar ERA of just 0.55. He’s earned wins in all 3 of his last starts, with his most recent coming against the Royals.
