15* Rangers/Angels AL Late-Night BAILOUT on Texas -102
Texas vs. LA Angels,
06/02/2012 22:05 EDT,
Score: 2 - 3
Money Line: -101 Texas
After losing three straight, it's clear that the two-time defending AL champion Texas Rangers are hungry for a victory tonight. I believe they'll get it behind Japanese sensation Yu Darvish as he continues his impressive 2012 campaign tonight.
Darvish is 7-2 with a 3.21 ERA in 10 starts in his rookie season. He has struck out 66 batters in 61 innings. C.J. Wilson is having a solid year for Los Angeles as well, but he has struggled against his former team. Wilson is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA and 2.000 WHIP in two starts against the Rangers this season.
The Rangers are 5-0 in their last 5 vs. a team with a winning record. Texas is 39-13 in their last 52 games following a loss. The Rangers are 8-2 in Darvish's 10 starts this season. Texas is 40-16 in their last 56 vs. AL West opponents. Roll with the Rangers Saturday.
