Texas Rangers vs. Milwaukee Brewers Preview
The Rangers are coming off a loss and are only 5-5 in their last 10 games, but they are still in first place in the AL West 2.5 games up on the A’s. The Brewers are reeling losers of 5 straight and 7 of their last 10 and they are 5.5 games back of the Cardinals in the NL Central. MLB lines have the visiting Rangers as the favorites in this game with a total of 8.5 runs.
In their last games the Rangers lost to the Chicago Cubs 9-2 and the Brewers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals 10-1.
On the season the Rangers have an Over/Under record of 10-20 and they have an run-line W/L record of 15-17 and the Brewers have an Over/Under record of 21-9 and a run-line W/L record of 12-18.
This season the Brewers are 9-10 at home and the Rangers are 9-8 on the road.
The Brewers have lost 8 of their last 11 games after a 9-game winning streak.
Justin Grimm (2-1 2.28 ERA) goes for the Rangers tonight and in his last outing he gave up 3 earned runs in 6 innings in a loss to the Chicago White Sox.
Wade Peralta (2-2 6.00) is on the hill for the Brewers and he was rocked in his last outing giving up 6 earned runs in only 4 innings of work in a loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.
Peralta will be making his first career start against the Rangers.
The last time these 2 teams met in Milwaukee it was back in 2010 when the Rangers took 2 of 3 games.
While the Brewers have been reeling star slugger Ryan Braun is batting .424 (14 for 33) and is riding an 8-game winning streak.
This season the Brewers rank 15th in the Majors in runs scored and the Rangers rank 11th.
The Brewers do rank a solid 8th in team batting average, but they have not been getting clutch hitting with men on base.
In some betting trends for this interleague game the Rangers are 5-2 in their last 7 interleague road games, 1-4 in their last 5 vs. a team with a losing record, and they have an Under record of 5-1 in their last 6 games.
The Brewers are 5-12 in their last 17 games as an underdog, 0-5 in their last 5 home games, and they have an Over record of 6-1 in their last 7 home games.
Jason’s Pick: Going with the Rangers in this one, as Grimm will have a good start and the Texas bats will get to Peralta.
