Mike Lundin‘s Rangers vs. Astros Free Pick
Start Time: June 14, 2017, 8:10 PM
The Houston Astros are sitting top of the AL West 11 games ahead of LAA and the Texas Rangers who are tied for 2nd. The Rangers are however the team riding a five-game winning streak and the visitors can complete the sweep of this three-game series Wednesday night.
Houston hands the ball to Francis Martes (0-0, 9.82 ERA) who will make his first career start. The 21 year old was charged with four earned runs in 3 2/3 frames of relief against the Angels on Friday, and this is not a good time to face the Rangers who have averaged more than five runs per game during their winning streak.
Andrew Cashner (3-5, 3.17 ERA) takes the ball for Texas. The right-hander has come up with six quality starts over his last eight appearances. He’s not had much success against Houston this season, going 0-2 with a 5.25 ERA, but the Astros have struggled at the plate lately resulting in losses in six of their last eight games.
Look for the Rangers to keep this game within one run.
