New York Yankees starter David Phelps faced Yu Darvish and the Rangers last Wednesday in a rain shorten affair. Phelps pitched 5 innings giving up 1 run on 5 hits for the 2-1 win. The Rangers ace Darvish has only 2 wins in his last 7 starts and is worth a shot to play against in this spot with a Texas squad behind him who have lost 29 of their last 35.
Take the New York Yankees +140.
