The Texas Rangers currently have the worst record in the American League and will be looking to bounce back in this divisional rivalry game against the Athletics’.
The Rangers went deep twice and powered past the Athletics in the series opener 8-1.
Brad Miller hit a go-ahead RBI single in the 8th inning and the Rangers pitching shut down the A’s to win 2-0.
The Texas Rangers are now on a five-game losing streak after losing the opening two games of the series against the Seattle Mariners on the road. It seems that Texas has to score 10+ runs to win a game this year, considering both of its wins.
The Rangers spent big money in the offseason and cannot be happy with the early results. They have yet to earn a series win and while the offense has been strong, the pitching has been abysmal. They lost two of three against Seattle prior to this series.
Nathanial Lowe has been one of the Rangers’ top hitters so far, registering a .396 average with seven RBIs and a stellar .890 OPS. The 26-year-old first baseman was stellar against the Athletics in 2021, bashing three homers along with 11 RBIs in 53 at-bats. Lowe has ten hits in his last five games.
Texas is averaging 5.08 runs on the year, landing them fourth in the big leagues. The pitching staff is terrible and has posted a Major League worst 6.09 team ERA.
For the first time this season, the Oakland Athletics failed to get on the scoreboard as they fell short 1-0 to the Baltimore Orioles at home. It was a disappointing outcome given the A’s had seven hits opposite Baltimore’s five.
Oakland has a different look this season after unloading many of their top hitters. Not much is expected from this A’s group however they have been competitive, holding a winning record after a series win against the O’s this week. Their best series occurred in Tampa Bay.
The Athletics are receiving good production from catcher Sean Murphy. The 27-year-old has collected 11 RBIs but has filed a .624 OPS on the young season. Brown was dominant against the Rangers last year, recording 12 RBIs and a remarkable .953 OPS.
Oakland is scoring an average of 4.71 runs, landing them eighth in the Majors Leagues. The pitching has been effective, recording a 3.30 team ERA, tabbing them 11th overall.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

- Athletics O/U are 2-4 at home
Texas Rangers vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
The Rangers were the worst team in the American League coming into this series with one of the worst pitching staff as well, surrounding an average of 6.09 ERA. Surprisingly, the Rangers have stifled the Athletics’ to just 1 run through the first 2 games and have come away victorious in both.
Oakland is due to a wake up call and I think Sunday is their time. Cole Irvin had his best outing of the season at home, going 5 innings and only allowing 1 ER with a win. The leftie can cause some problem’s for a Rangers lineup that doesn’t like southpaws.
Give me the A’s and the under on Sunday.
