2 units on Texas +110 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The A's are quickly playing themselves out of wildcard contention and are now just 1-7 over their last eight as the offense has gone stone cold. Outside of an eight-run outburst against Tampa Bay, they have produced a total of 12 runs in the other seven games during this eight-game stretch. They will face Vicente Padilla who has pitched the Rangers to a 14-5 mark over his 19 starts including a league-best 10-2 on the road. The Rangers are a much improved team with a high-octane offense, especially against RHP where they are 41-29 on the season. We like the Rangers in this one.
