The pitching matchups for this Fourth of July American League game will pit right hander Scott Feldman on the hill as he will oppose Dylan Axelrod for the Chicago White Sox. Expect Texas to come in fully focused after suffering an embarrassing 19-2 defeat in game one of this series on Tuesday night as a -131 road favorite. The Rangers bats will need to come alive tonight because Scott Feldman has struggled mightily this year as the hurler comes in with an ERA over six runs for the season. When you go back and look at Feldman’s career marks in Texas you have to scratch your head because he has had several poor season performances with three years of ERA’s well over five runs yet he is still cashing a paycheck for the Rangers. He has spent his entire career with the Rangers so the Texas hitters are accustomed to entering the ballpark knowing their offense must win the game because of Feldman’s poor history on the mound. Axelrod has bounced around the White Sox pitching rotation as he has spent time as a starter and reliever. He owns a season ERA of 4.50. Axelrod in his lone home start allowed five earned runs and six hits in just 5 1/3rds innings of work against Milwaukee on June 23rd. Texas is producing nearly six runs per game over their past seven contests. The bullpen has not been good for the White Sox at home this season with a staff ERA nearing five. With hot weather in Chicago as temperatures will be around 100 degrees it will be a hitting frenzy tonight as both lineups face below average starters so bet the over tonight but before you do get the best number by checking the sports odds.
