Astros, Rangers Look To Stay Hot In Openers Of Weekend Series

Posted by on 6/18/2015 8:10:50 PM

While many thought the Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners would be battling for top spot in the American League East at this point they have both struggled through the first couple of months of the MLB season and left the door wide open for the two teams from Houston to battle for first place. The Houston Astros have been one of the pleasant surprises in baseball this season with the best record in the entire AL while the surprising Texas Rangers are right there behind them. Here is a look at the best bets on the board for Saturday’s AL action.

Texas Rangers @ Chicago White Sox

Friday, 2:10 PM ET

Mitch Moreland has been a beast for Texas while Joey Gallo has made the case to stay up with the big club and after they took care of the Los Angeles Dodgers there is no way to overlook this Rangers team anymore. Now Texas gets the opportunity to stay hot in Chicago where the White Sox can’t seem to win a game. Nick Martinez is 5-2 and while he has been roughed up in two of his last three starts he still has a terrific 2.76 ERA. Martinez should be able to keep the Chicago bats in check while the Rangers bats should get to the same Carlos Rodon that was just rocked for seven earned runs in just 3.2 innings of work in an 11-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Pick: Texas

Los Angeles Angels @ Oakland Athletics

Friday, 4:05 PM ET

Consistency has been a major issue for the Angels this season and while they should be able to get back on track in Oakland this weekend there is simply no guarantee that will happen. Jered Weaver gets the start on Friday but he is just 4-7 with a 4.65 ERA and he was tagged for six earned runs in a 6-2 loss to the Athletics earlier in the season. Meanwhile, Jesse Hahn has posted a respectable 3.62 ERA and three straight winning starts so don’t be surprise if Oakland stole a win in this one as long as the Athletics bats can once again get to Weaver

Pick: Oakland

Houston Astros @ Seattle Mariners

Friday, 10:10 PM ET

Houston’s pitching has been a big part of their success and Dallas Keuchel has been absolutely outstanding as he is 8-2 with a 2.04 ERA and 0.95 WHIP on the season. Keuchel has allowed more than three earned runs only once in his last six starts and the Mariners offense has been inconsistent enough to think that he can keep them in check on Friday. Meanwhile, Taijuan Walker has allowed just one earned run in each of his last two starts but he gave up 15 hits in his last 13 innings and his 5.00 ERA for the season isn’t nearly good enough to trust him in this spot. The Astros keep finding ways to win games and they should be able to stay hot in Seattle.

Pick: Houston
