The Rangers will be happy to get back home to Texas following a 3-6 road trip. They were shut out in a 3-0 loss to the White Sox in Chicago on Sunday, but I think they’ll give the visiting Bronx Bombers all they can handle here with Bartolo Colon on the mound for the opener of a three-game series.
Colon (2-1, 2.82 ERA) is coming off 7 2/3 scoreless innings of four-hit ball at Seattle, his best performance of the season. His career numbers against the Yankees are not great, but we can note that Masahiro Tanaka (4-2, 4.73 ERA) is 0-2 with a 6.38 ERA in four career starts against Texas. He last faced the Rangers in an 11-5 loss on Sept. 8, 2017 in Arlington.
This game is the start of a seven-game, seven-day homestand for the Rangers, and I expect them to keep this a close game.
Free pick on Texas Rangers +1.5.
