The Texas Rangers will try to claim revenge against the Baltimore Orioles in the opener of a three-game set at Choctaw Stadium. The Orioles swept the Rangers one month ago and they’ll be trying to repeat the feat as they have been currently on the rise. Baltimore comes into this one winning 5 out of their last 10 games, which helps them keep their Wild Card hopes alive.
The main issue for the Orioles is how they’ll handle being on the road, as they put their 22-31 record on the line. Knowing that they swept the Rangers not too long ago might give them enough confidence to start the series in a strong manner, but if they fail to put up a good performance early on in the series, it shouldn’t be surprising to see them get swept by the Rangers.
The Rangers are third in the American League West division, currently sitting below .500 and 9 games behind the Seattle Mariners. They have gone 4-6 in their last ten games and are really looking at the next few weeks to help carry them forward if they want a decent chance to secure a Wild Card spot.
Jon Gray will be opening up the game for the Texas Rangers, making this his 19th start of the season. He is holding a 7-5 record with a 3.62 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP over 102 innings pitched while striking out 113. The worrying thing is that Gray is coming off a rough start and remains a question mark on the mound.
On the other hand, the Orioles are sending Spenser Watkins to the mound, who had a great outing against the Rangers last time. Watkins is carrying a 3-1 record with a 4.03 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP over 58 innings pitched while striking out 35 throughout 13 starts. In his previous start this season against the Rangers, he allowed 1 run across 6.2 frames and he’ll be trying to replicate that today.
