The Texas Rangers have dominated the Baltimore Orioles as they have now won six straight following their 14-3 beat down last night. The Rangers are 19-10 on the season and must keep winning as the LA Angels have suddenly got it going with six wins in their past eight games. Texas will send Neftali Feliz on the mound on Tuesday. In five games Feliz sits with an ERA of 3.81 and a WHIP just over one on the season so he doesn’t allow many base runners. Feliz is backed by a good Rangers bullpen that has an ERA of just 1.85 on the road with a WHIP of 0.76. WHIP measures the amount of base runners allowed per game and being under one is very good. Low WHIP pitchers allow fewer big innings to their opponents. The Texas Rangers offense has been outstanding as the club is averaging 6 ½ runs and bat .312 in 16 games on the road this season. In those 16 road games in 2012 the Rangers have hit 22 home runs.
In a huge step up game for Baltimore last night they were not able to match the offensive production from a focused Texas team that looked to reset following some poor play in Cleveland the series before. Texas is the best team in baseball and when their minds are on winning you cannot go against them especially with the Angels getting into form. Jake Arrieta will go on the mound for Baltimore to battle this extremely tough Rangers lineup. Arrieta faced the Rangers once last year and got ripped for 8 earned runs and six hits with two home runs in just 3 1/3rd innings of work at home. In his last home start Arrieta allowed four earned runs and two homers to a light hitting Oakland lineup on the 27th of April. A focused Texas teams gets the job done tonight so before placing the wager read a sports book review.
