The Texas Rangers will host the Colorado Rockies on Saturday afternoon in interleague action. All MLB odds can be found at BetOnline sportsbook.
The Rockies are not out of it as of yet, but one more prolonged losing streak could put a fork in them. The Rockies have now lost 9 of their last 11 games after losing to the Rangers last night. They did however amass 12 hits in the game last night and will be looking for their pitching to improve today. Josh Outman will look to get things turned around as he gets the start in game two. He is a converted reliever who has given up 14 runs in his last three starts.
Texas has been the class of the American League from the beginning of the season. They’re leading their division and are getting a balanced offensive, defensive, and pitching performances from all members of the club. Roy Oswalt won his first outing of the season yesterday allowing just one run in 6+ innings of work. Colby Lewis will get the ball tonight for the Rangers and in his last 30 innings pitched has only let up six turn runs.
The Rangers virtually have the edge in every category in this matchup. We like the Rangers against the spread in this one at best sportsbooks online.
