Game Preview


The Rangers were able to take the opening game of this series. In their victory, Texas scored 10 runs on 11 hits and nine walks. The Rangers won thanks to a team effort that saw five players record multiple hits. Both Jonah Heim and Evan Carter hit a home run and had two hits.


Since Heim’s home shot was a grand slam, he drove in five runs. Dane Dunning had a strong start on the mound. He went six innings, allowing three runs on six hits while punching out seven batters to earn the victory.


Scherzer is mostly successful this year, although he has struggled in a few early games. Nonetheless, he remains one of baseball’s top pitchers. This season, Scherzer’s opponents are hitting.223 against him while he has struck out 172 batters in 147 2/3 innings.


Scherzer has excelled as a Rangers pitcher on the road this season. Scherzer has struck out 16 batters in 14 innings over two road outings while allowing only seven hits and three earned runs. With that kind of performance, the Rangers have a good shot at covering the spread and extending their winning streak.



George Springer was the team’s top hitter at the plate for the Blue Jays. He had a night where he went 2 for 4 with an RBI. Cavan Biggio went two for two with two runs scored and two hits batted in. Biggio hit a home run, too, in this contest.


Chris Bassitt took the loss on the mound. Five runs on nine hits and three strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings of work. Genesis Cabrera, coming in as a reliever, allowed four runs. In only 2/3 of an inning, he walked three batters and allowed two singles.


Ryu has been solid in his seven appearances. The Blue Jays are 5-2 in his starts and he has a 2.65 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in 34 innings of work. In six of his seven starts, he only lasted five innings, indicating that he cannot keep games close. But he consistently puts the Blue Jays in a winning position. For the Blue Jays to cover the spread, Ryu will need to pitch farther into the game than he has so far.
