Oakland at Texas
Sunday 05/03 03:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Oakland -130 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.77) RESULT: WIN
Oakland brings one of the best offenses in baseball into Texas, an easy home run park. Oakland is third in baseball in runs scored and 10th in on base percentage. Starter Sonny Gray continues to excel, 3-0 with a 1.98 ERA. Gray has already faced Texas once this season, earning an 8-0 win allowing one hit in eight innings with only one walk. Gray improved to 5-2 with a 1.74 ERA lifetime versus Texas. The Athletics are 13-5 when Gray starts against a team with a losing record. Texas is 25th in baseball in runs scored and 23rd in on-base percentage. The Rangers are 24-50 against a right-handed starter, plus 14-41 as a home dog. The Rangers had to find some pitching after the injury to ace Darvish, but the addition of righty Yovani Gallardo (2-3, 4.05) was not a good one, especially for this park and the AL. He is also 0-2 with a 8.10 ERA lifetime versus Oakland. Play Oakland.
