Rangers’ starter Yu Darvish had a rough outing in his latest versus the Athletics allowing seven runs of which four were earned over 5 innings. I look for him to bounce back here against the Angels whom he has owned in his career with a 7-1 W/L record with a 3.82 ERA over 11 starts. The Angels counter with Matt Shoemaker who is coming off of arguably his best start of his career with 10 strikeouts and only 2 runs allowed over 8 frames against the Indians but does face on paper his toughest opponent in his young career tonight. Take Texas Rangers -119.
