Los Angeles at Texas

Sunday 07/05 07:05 PM Eastern

1 unit on Texas +116 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.16)  RESULT: LOSS

The Angels have been hot, but lefty C.J. Wilson is a streak stopper on the road. The Angels are 7-19 in Wilson's last 26 road starts. He is also 1-4 as a road favorite of -110 to -150. This is the third straight road game of a long trip, and this Los Angeles offense is only 18th in baseball in runs scored and 20th in on-base percentage. Wilson faces the team that originally drafted him, and in nine starts against Texas he has a losing record with a 6.59 ERA. This is a tough park to pitch in, and the Texas offense is 11th in runs scored. The Rangers are 34-15 against team with a winning record and have a strong arm on the mound in Colby Lewis (8-3, 4.13), who is 3-0 at home with a 3.57 ERA. Opponents hit .207 off him at home, and the Rangers are 7-1 when Lewis starts against a team with a winning record. Lewis posted his sixth straight quality start and logged his fourth consecutive win in Tuesday's 8-6 victory at Baltimore. He is unbeaten (4-0, 3.03 ERA) over his last nine starts at home and has not lost at home since last September, so grab the home dog. Play Texas.
