Texas at Tampa Bay
Saturday 05/09 06:10 PM Eastern
1 unit on Tampa Bay -131 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.76) RESULT: WIN
Texas had a nice surprising run, but it came crashing apart yesterday in an 8-2 defeat. This will be the sixth straight road game for a weak Texas team, one ranked #19 in runs scored, #22 in on-base percentage. The Rangers trot out lefty Ross Detwiler (0-3, 6.57 ERA), with opponents hitting .324 off him. Throw in the 11 walks he's allowed and that's 45 base runners in 24+ innings! The Rangers are 20-42 against the AL East, as well as 1-4 in Detwiler's last five starts. The Rays’ pitching staff boasts 256 strikeouts, tied for second-most in the AL behind the Cleveland Indians. The Rays are on a 6-1 run at home and the Rangers are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings. Take Tampa Bay.
