5* ANGELS/RANGERS ESPN BLUE CHIP TOP PLAY

---Texas Rangers -125---

I'll gladly back the Rangers at home with one of the hottest starters in baseball taking the mound for Texas. Matt Garza, who was recently acquired from the Cubs has won six straight starts while posting a ridiculous 1.23 ERA. In his first start with the Rangers, Garza allowed 1 unearned run on five hits over 7 and 1/3 innings of work in a 3-1 victory of the Yankees. He should have a solid edge with this being his first start vs the Angels in 3 years.

Los Angeles will counter with a hot pitcher of their own in Jered Weaver, who has a 1.77 ERA over his last three starts. However, Weaver has not been as sharp on the road. He's 0-3 with a 4.60 ERA in five starts away from home. During his recent three game stretch, he allowed 4 runs on 9 hits in a 0-6 loss at Seattle, which just goes to show you how good he's been at home. Weaver's only start vs the Rangers in 2013 came in Texas back in early April. He allowed 5 runs on 7 hits in 5 innings of a 3-7 defeat. BET THE RANGERS!
