The Texas Rangers look for a three-game series sweep, but they won't get it against their AL West rivals. The Rangers are 3-10 vs. the American League West, plus 3-9 against a left-handed starter. The Rangers have to start Nick Martinez, who was promoted from Triple-A to start at Colorado last week, but his outing lasted only four innings after the Rockies pummeled him for seven runs on seven hits. The 24-year-old is 0-3 with a 6.98 ERA in his last five starts. The Angels are on a 17-6 run, inculding 10-4 in their last 14 home games. Angels talented lefty Andrew Heaney (4-0, 1.57 ERA) has been as good as advertised, adding the highly touted prospect from Miami during the offseason. He posted his fourth straight win Monday when he held Boston to two runs with no walks over seven innings. Heaney has recorded a quality start in all five outings and owns a 27-to-4 strikeout-to-walk ratio, with the Angels 5-0 when he starts, and the Rangers are 7-20 in the last 27 meetings against Anaheim. Play the Angels.
